If you’re looking for ways to help children deal with family violence, disability and mental health, have you ever considered surfing?
The Ocean Mind surfing program, run along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, has been helping young people since 2016. Their approach is based on the Wave Project, a successful intervention program in the UK.
