Wellbeing news: headspace resources

In our Week 4 Cross Curricular programs, Years 7, 8 and 10 students engaged in Headspace sessions on Mental Health Care. The content was year level/age specific, taking into account the developmental needs of each cohort.

To complement the student sessions, we ran a one off online workshop for parents/caregivers giving them an avenue to broach mental health care with their young person. The workshop:

  • gave an understanding of mental health and wellbeing in young people;
  • gave a guide to carers/parents of changes that may indicate a young person is going through a tough time;
  • identified strategies to connect and communicate with young people; and
  • increased knowledge about how to support a young person and where to access professional support.

If you were unable to attend the online session or you did but wanted further information, Headspace has compiled a resource kit for parents/caregivers to access below. This can also be found on the wellbeing resources page here: https://www.reynellaec.sa.edu.au/wellbeing-resources/

If you have any concerns about the wellbeing of your young person, please feel free to make contact with the 3 Wellbeing Leaders at Reynella East College:

Michelle Lee: P–Year 6
Alan Peat: Years 7–9
Karen Pearce: Years 10–12
