Reach Out Central is designed - with the help of $500K Australian from the Sony Foundation (! that's nice) - to help kids who might struggle with negative feelings or depression, by role-playing life situations.
Reach Out Central (ROC) is an interactive program that's designed to help you explore how your thinking, behaviour and feelings all interact with each other. Choose your own character and try out different ways of reacting to real-life situations. On the way, you might change the way you feel by changing the way you think - it's easier than you'd expect.
That's good advice right there. Sounds like it draws from cognitive behavioural techniques, which are pretty sensible things in themselves (and not taught as standard, to my knowledge).
.. from a clip on Aussie news. Looks like high-quality stuff. I'm going to dig in over lunch.
