Navigating Teenage Depression

1 in 4 children have a diagnosable mental health concern. These include anxiety, stress and depression. What does this mean for you and your family?

On Monday 29th February, William Carey Christian School will be holding a seminar presented by Black Dog Institute about depression in young people. This presentation is designed for parents, teachers, and people working with, or caring for, young people. It is an informative presentation offering a quality introduction to the subject.

The presentation will cover:

  • The pressures faced by young people today
  • Signs/symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder in young people
  • Identification of early warning signs
  • When and where to seek help
  • Practical strategies for offering support and communicating with a young person you are worried about
  • Strategies for building personal resilience

This event will be held on Monday 29th February in R Block from 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm.

(Following the 1 hour professional presentation our guest speaker, as well the counselling and senior welfare team, will be available to answer questions and discuss situations specific to your circumstances).
