Sir John Kirwan's foundation has launched a new initiative to teach kids the basics of mental health.
Mitey supports primary schools in delivering an evidence-based approach to teaching resilience - and has already helped more than 12,000 Kiwi kids.
Kirwan says the initiative aims to give students critical mental health tools and knowledge.
“And I think once you can identify an emotion and understand it and then have the tools to deal with it, you’ll be better off in life.”
