Young people across Australia identified mental health and wellbeing as their most pressing concern in the national Mission Australia Youth Survey.
But would you know how to have a conversation with a young person about mental health and wellbeing if you became concerned?
Join us for our interactive professional development event to gain a better understanding of mental health and wellbeing in young people and to develop skills and techniques that you can use in your own classroom to approach a student and have a conversation.
Walk away from the event with a bag containing three free engaging classroom resources that target mental health and wellbeing in young people and additional information about other resources that are available at your disposal.
- Mental health and wellbeing in young people
- The current state of mental health and wellbeing in young people
- How to start a conversation with young people about health and wellbeing
- Resources and support available to support the wellbeing of young people
Part of the event includes interactive sessions by The Experience Lab, which will give you the opportunity to actively engage in fun scenarios and exercises to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of how to have a conversation with young people about mental health and wellbeing.
This professional development event is suitable for teachers, both established and trainee. We also welcome registrations from chaplains, support workers or any other professional working regularly with young people in schools.
