Young people have told us – mental health, both their own & that of their peers, is their #1 concern. We must consider how we will respond, offer care, and ensure we do not cause further harm. We were delighted to discover that Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health, has been offering free webinars on these topics, and we strongly encourage you to check them out. They last around an hour, cost nothing, and are a great learning opportunity. Some titles include:
#chatsafe: A young person’s guide for communicating safely online about suicide
Trauma informed care – A policy report focused on young people, trauma and mental health
Social anxiety, stigma and early psychosis
All previous webinars are available via the Orygen website, as well as information on upcoming topics.
