Beyond Blue tells us one in seven young Australians aged between four and 17 years experience a mental health condition. That’s a sobering statistic.
As part of our Wellbeing program at Beaconhills College, we have trained our staff for many years, using external providers, to increase awareness of youth mental health. Now we have taken steps to enable our staff to become accredited trainers so we can increase the frequency of staff training across the College.
Staff are trained in awareness of the mental health issues affecting young people, including early identification of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-harm, trauma and psychosis.
The program teaches staff to have awareness of the issues and a stepped-out response plan to get young people to professional support as early as possible.
The next stage will be to offer a senior student version of training to help students identify friends and peers who may need help. These are positive initiatives in the long-term battle to address a critical social issue.
