#227: Dr Craig Daly & Dale Sidebottom | JAG Bag Launch

Today is an exhilarating day as it marks three years since Dr Craig Daly and I started talking about putting together a challenge to help children and adults worldwide. This is completely free for everyone and labour of love to improve the globes happiness and mental health. Below you can read out what's involved in the free packs and click on the link at the end of the show notes to gain access to the JAG BAG Packs from Jugar Life. With approximately half of all mental disorders commencing before the age of 14, school settings play a crucial role in ensuring that mental health and well-being are constant focus points during a student’s formative years. Research over the past 20 years has suggested that comprehensive initiatives embracing a 'whole of school' approach (involving school leaders, teachers, staff, and parents) have fostered a climate where better transitions from childhood to adulthood occur. However, overall, student mental health appears to be on the decline, with an estimated one in every five adolescents suffering from a significant mental health disorder. Of additional concern is that, sadly, most instances go undetected and untreated. Early research outputs since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic estimate incidences of adolescent anxiety, depression, and stress have risen significantly. Students worldwide struggle to deal with the loneliness, social isolation, and negativity brought on by continued uncertainty. At JUGAR|LIFE, we want to do our part to remedy that. JAG, as an acronym, stands for joy, affection, and gratitude. These elements exist as core components of social and emotional wellbeing. We challenged ourselves to design an initiative that prioritised these components irrespective of school setting; an initiative that was comprehensive in nature, flexible in delivery, and aligned with specific learning objectives drawn from global social and emotional wellness curricula. We made it our mission to make it available free of charge to all. The JAG Bag is the result.
