Mental Health team head to CHERI Conference in Sydney

22 May 2017

This week Ellen Newman from the Mental Health and Research team of the Hunter Institute of Mental Health will be attending CHERI: Improving student learning through well-being Conference.  

The team will be hosting a trade display - providing information and free resources to conference delegates on the Response AbilityConnectionsStart 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 CHERI Conference this week, head to the Hunter Institute of Mental Health display to get your free copies of these valuable resources. If you aren’t attending the conference, but are still interested in these programs, contact our office for more information himh@hnehealth.nsw.gov.au
