HELP & SUPPORT FOR PARENTS

While our College is largely geared to educate and support its girls, we know there are times when parents and carers need help too.  There are many contemporary resources to which they can turn, including:

 

Headspace - An interactive website on youth mental health

www.headspace.org.au

Youth Beyond Blue - A site for young people needing support on depression and anxiety

www.youthbeyondblue.com

Healthy Families Beyond Blue - Healthy Families is all about giving you the information, knowledge and confidence to support the young people in your life – whether you’re a parent, guardian, grandparent, a favourite uncle or an awesome auntie. They also help you take care of your own mental health and wellbeing, especially if you’re a new parent or about to become one.
