Acne is estimated to affect 85% percent of Australian children and young adults aged 12 – 24 (but if you’re one of the unlucky ones, like me, you may experience the condition well into adulthood!). Approximately 5% of adolescents will experience severe acne. Regardless of severity, it can be painful, embarrassing, and negatively affect a teen’s self-esteem & hold them back in life.  Conventional treatments generally focus on treating the topical symptoms of acne or prescription medication, but most have limited long-term effectiveness, are expensive, & many have unwanted side effects. But there are some key processes and things happening…

One in every ten fatal drownings in Australia are children under the age of 4 so it only makes sense that these are the children that are also learning how to swim and float without floatation aids or parents holding them in the water singing nursery rhymes. KASS deliver Australia’s safest, most effective, accelerated aquatic survival program for non-verbal infants and young children. Our program focuses on aquatic survival skills…

When these things happen, newly divorced people are at risk of feeling isolated. It’s a good idea to invest time where possible in building new supportive social networks. This…
