This week, Ellen Newman from the Mental Health and Research team of the Hunter Institute of Mental Health will be attending the Positive Schools Conference in Sydney.
The team will be hosting a trade display - providing information and free resources to conference delegates on the Response Ability, Connections, Start Well and CHiRP programs, which all aim to promote positive mental wellbeing and development in students, children, young people or teachers.
Supporting the social and emotional development and wellbeing of children and young people has been associated with better mental health outcomes, improved behaviour and higher academic achievement. For over 19 years, the Hunter Institute of Mental Health has been providing information and resources to teachers and educators for use in early childhood, primary, middle years and secondary teaching training.
If you are attending the Positive Schools Conference this week, head to the Hunter Institute of Mental Health display to get your free copies of these valuable resources and if you are unable to attend but are interested in these programs, head to our website to learn more at: www.himh.org.au/home/our-programs/child-youth-and-wellbeing-program.
