Armed For Life is a social enterprise driven by the goal of helping children, teenagers and adults develop resilience and increase their well being and mental health. Too often we struggle with issues such as depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts without reaching out and getting the help we need. We strive to make it acceptable to ask for that help

We achieve this through the sessions and programs we run for:

Primary School aged students,

Secondary School aged students,

School staff,

Parents, and

Adults in the workplace,

as well as the school holiday programs and camps that we run every year.

** In schools we address issues relating to Protective Behaviours and the Keeping Kids Safe Curriculum in a safe and trustworthy way **

PROGRAMS

An 8 week program designed to re-engage students in school by using a 2 sessions a week with mentor and one with an activity of the schools choosing (among which is the very popular choice of Parkour) designed for 20 students.

An extension of the Engagement Program designed to run for 1 or 2 terms teaching all the skills required to be a barber (including skin fades, texturing etc) meeting once a week with the goal of the school setting up their very own Armed For Life Barber Shop. Designed for only 10 students at a time.

The SEL Classrooms Program has been co-developed by Armed For Life and Dr Elena Limnios – an award winning ex-associate professor from UWA. This is an in-class program designed to run once a fortnight for 2 hours or once a week for 1 semester – and is led by a teacher (or staff member in special cases) chosen by the school.

When signing up to the SEL program you receive:

A collaboration with BRad Ness OAM. This is a 2-hour workshop utilising Brad’s incredible story losing his leg and the journey to deal with that and eventually become a Gold Medal winning Captain of the Men’s Paralympic Basketball Team.

The second hour the students get to use the wheelchairs to play wheelchair basketball to give an experience of being in the wheelchair while having fun.

This basketball clinic is run by experienced trainers already getting results with their personal clients – and we refer to these trainers as MENTORS. This clinic goes beyond the standard trainer just focusing on skills – the focus is more so on attitudes, values and behaviours that GREATLY affect their conduct and play on court.

Skills training included in the program:

And the mentor will discuss issues such as:

“I wanted to thank you, and your team, for the way they approached yesterday’s Student Wellbeing Day.

Their flexibility, patience and genuine care enabled our students to receive some important messages. You know all too well what our students are dealing with, which sometimes makes it difficult to engage the, for the most part this wasn’t an issue yesterday.”

“After listening to Adam speak, you will feel moved to make a positive and lasting difference in your own life and the community surrounding you. Through his powerful story and vulnerability to share his past experiences, Adam inevitably connects with every single person he comes into contact with. His communication skills, growth mindset, and passion for spreading mental health has allowed for his platform to change lives for the better. I highly recommend Adam’s presence to speak with your organization, team, school or community group, positive change will be your only result.”

“Adam Przytula’s presentation on bullying is outstanding. From start to finish our students were fixated by his every word, as he reflected on his own bullying experiences and that of many others. He delivers all the key messages about bullying in a clear and engaging way. Adam’s presentation demands that all students reflect on their own behaviour and challenges them to become part of the solution to bullying rather than part of the problem. His presentation will make a difference to the students at your school and their attitude towards bullying.  A ‘must see’ presentation!”

“I just wanted to say how inspiring your speeches were. I just finished a 2 day retreat and I left so inspired. I learnt so much at your sessions. Your self-esteem, relationship and decision making sessions were amazing. You guys are AMAZING at talking to audiences and really engaged with us. I went into this thinking that it was going to be so boring but came out amazed I’ve never listened and focused so much before. The people that spoke over the 2 days and told there story really touched my heart and was shocked. I’ve never heard a story like any of them before. It told me that you can change your life around no matter how hurt you may be. Thank you so much for coming and talking to us because you really helped me understand so much.”

“Your talk was so amazing, thank you so much for talking with us today! Your speech was extremely inspirational and I am proud to say that it has most definitely changed my perspective on the matter, I realised that I myself have been very hypocritical by being horrible to people even though I am bullied myself (not that much, just sometimes, but by the same person). I realised that I need to treat people the way that I want to be treated. Your story was extremely inspiring as well because it made me realise that asking for help is so much better than just ignoring people or fighting back with aggression. I will be working harder to be an active bystander from now on as well! Thanks again, you really changed my perspective on so many things and really touched my heart ❤❤❤!!!”

I understand now that I don’t have to deal with anything on my own and it’s best to ask people for help. Everybody that talked to us on those two days were great, I loved hearing each and every story as I could relate to them all in some way. I really enjoyed the games that we played but even more because I won one… thanks for everything!!!”
