headspace Ashfield offers presentations to schools broadly throughout the Inner-West, Canterbury, Burwood and Strathfield areas.
Due to the age range of our service, presentations are offered for years 7 to 12. As we are experiencing high level of interest for school presentations we have created a Booking Form. The form allows us to manage and prioritise school presentations on a number of criteria.
Type of presentation: Please note that headspace Ashfield provides community presentations that are of a general nature with a health promotion focus. The presentations have been created to promote positive mental health and well-being and to encourage early help seeking behaviour amongst young people. Our Community Engagement team is unable to deliver presentations which are a medical intervention or have a therapeutic focus.
Invite Other Schools: We encourage partnering with other schools when creating events such as well-being days. Due to the number of requests which headspace Ashfield receives, events that encourage interschool partnerships and reach a broader audience will be prioritised.
Demand for request: It is important to note that while headspace Ashfield will endeavour to meet all requests in a timely manner, there may be times when this is not possible due to the clinical demand on the service
Resources: If you would like some resources and fact sheets regarding youth mental health please follow this link http://www.headspace.org.au/what-works/resources
We also have a range of posters and help cards that are specific to the Inner-West area. Please contact us for further information (02) 9193 8000
If you wish to have headspace Ashfield present at your school please complete the form and send it to headspace Ashfield with attention to Kitty (Community Engagement Coordinator) - firstname.lastname@example.org
