Strong mental health in childhood is a resource for life. Trauma is often intergenerational, and children’s mental health is not well understood, sometimes even by the organisations and workers providing crucial family and child support services. The community services sector is reporting increasing complexity in the needs of their clients as financial hardship and social isolation are having far reaching impacts on the overall wellbeing of children and families.
When our workforce has a robust understanding of the early signs of mental health difficulties and know how to apply this knowledge to their practice, families and children are much more likely to get the vital support they need.
This workshop will equip leaders to:
Increase their knowledge of the factors that influence infant and child mental health
Build the capacity of workforces to proactively utilise evidence-based approaches that support positive mental health outcomes for infants, children and their families.
This workshop, facilitated by Emerging Minds, is suited to those designing and leading child and family programs and for leaders wanting to better embed children’s social and emotional wellbeing in their organisational advocacy and strategy.
