Come along to this special event about the mental health of the young people in your lives, presented with expert insights from our guest speakers from Black Dog Institute.

The past few years have had a huge impact on the social and emotional wellbeing of young people. We welcome you to join us for an engaging panel discussion to educate us all on how we can better understand and support youth mental health.

Guest presenter Shai Mikus will share her lived experience and the Institute’s presentation that has been specially developed for grandparents, parents and community-based carers of young people. She will be joined by GP Consultant Dr Jan Orman in a lively discussion to explore this topic and take on your questions about supporting the mental health of the upcoming generation.

Event participants will learn how to spot early warning signs of mental health issues, when and where to seek help and how to support a young person they care about.
