Important Points to Consider
Presentations to staff
We want to ensure that as a service we are meeting the needs of schools in the area as well as promoting a whole school approach to mental health. Before delivering workshops, we encourage schools to invite us in to meet and present to all staff to ensure they are aware of what we do too.
Type of workshop
Please note that headspace Hurstville provides education workshops that are of a general nature and have a health promotion and education focus. We deliver these workshops to promote positive mental health and well-being and encourage young people to do the same. Our Community Engagement Team are unable to provide sessions with a medical or 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 Hurstville receives, events that involve interschool partnerships and reach a broader audience will be encouraged.
Demand for request
It is important to note that while headspace Hurstville 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.
