Flinders University (College of Education, Psychology & Social Work) commissioned Monkeystack to develop their anti-bullying intervention into a modern and engaging program as part of the Little Breakthrough Heroes: Big Talks For Little People children’s mental health initiative and charity-first collaboration between Breakthrough Foundation and Little Heroes Foundation.

We produced a series of animations and a range of online content to be used as key resources within an educational program structured of eight weekly modules. Each module provides tools and resources to help with resilience, anti-bullying and opening up conversation on emotions, designed to be delivered by teachers or on a student self-help basis, highlighting the message “Mental illness affects everyone… including children”.

Our design and creation of the cute ‘Peeps and Feels’ represent every child viewer – not defined by gender, race, shape or features, but by emotional characteristics. This approach to character design makes for an inclusive experience, no matter what classroom viewers are in. Concepts, characters and storylines were thought out strategically as we created a colourful and engaging collection of animated visual resources, each covering a topic highlighted within modules for children to connect with and learn from.
