Mental Health Info Sessions for Year 9 Students

When we talk about Mental Health we often focus on illness or diagnosis, and overlook the fact that just like our physical health we all have mental health and just like our physical health there are ways we can look after our mental health and nurture a healthy headspace. This session explores what mental health is, looks at the different ways we can support our mental health and encourages young people to consider who is in their support networks. The session also covers what headspace is, the services young people can access and introduces the staff that work at the centre. Sessions are delivered during PDHPE class time with classroom support from PDHPE staff.

This year sessions have been run at Mackillop College, Skillset Senior College and St Joseph’s Oberon with plans underway for Term 3 delivery at Bathurst High School. If you’d like the headspace team to come and speak to your Year 9 students or a group of young people you work please with please contact Karen Golland. Please note that sessions require a one month booking period to ensure staff availability.
