Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing of Aboriginal Students and Families
This event familiarises participants with the target areas of Component 4 focusing on understanding mental health difficulties, and developing strategies to improve help-seeking and recognise students who may be experiencing mental health difficulties. This session will pay particular attention to students and their families who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
It also considers whole school staff processes and prepares participants to effectively deliver the professional learning to the staff group. It is recommended that School Action Teams partner with an appropriate parenting support or mental health professional in the delivery of Component 4.
