While children can be resilient, they need tools to help them navigate through challenges and emergencies.
Hills-based charity Bushfire Kids Connect is piloting a new program at 10 metro and regional schools called 'Bushfire Brave', which empowers young people to learn to be mentally and physically prepared for bushfires.
Samantha Roos from the team joins Jennie Lenman to discuss the program and how it has come about.
Lifeline's Bushfire Recovery Line is available on 13 HELP (134 357).
