THIS EVENT WAS  RECORDED AND A LINK SENT TO ALL THOSE WHO REGISTERED. SO IF YOU COULDN’T MAKE IT ON THE DAY DON’T WORRY.
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TOWARDS CHILDSAFE TO CONTINUE TO PREVENT HARM AND ABUSE OF CHILDREN.

CHILDSAFE is delighted to have an important a practical chat about mental health and coping strategies suitable for those who live with and work with teens.

Given the state of Australia right now we feel this is critically important.

Some of the questions we will discuss are:

1. What are you some signs that kids aren’t coping? As opposed to just being difficult teenagers?
2. Self-harm is an area of passion for you, what can you offer parents or people working with teens?
3. What are some really practical suggestions for those living with and working with teens who are self-harming?
4. Just say we have a teen who we think would benefit from support, but we are afraid to bring up the topic in case they feel labeled / and re have a fairly good idea they won’t be open to talking to someone? What’s the best approach?
5. How do we help our teens help their friends, without getting overwhelmed themselves?
6. Some communication tips for working with intense teens.
