Zippy’s Friends is being introduced in South Korea by the Nam-Gu Mental Health Promotion Centre in Gwangju, the country’s sixth-largest city with a population of 1.5 million. The Department is keen to promote mental health in schools, and chose Zippy’s Friends to complement its offering of programmes and cater for the youngest children in school. The programme will be introduced gradually, starting with delivery by the department’s own staff in 2017. They will train teachers to run the programme from 2018 onwards.
