Partners in Parenting

Helping build parents’ and carers’ skills and confidence to support their high school-aged young person's mental health and wellbeing

In partnership with Monash University, headspace is offering an evidence-based online parenting program designed to help parents and carers build skills and confidence in supporting their high school-aged young people’s mental health and wellbeing. 

Partners in Parenting also covers more common parenting challenges, such as communication, managing strong emotions, boundaries, conflicts and staying involved in your high school-aged young person’s life while they navigate their independence.  

There are 10 interactive online modules to explore, you can complete them in any order and at your own time and pace. Each one will only take around 15 to 25 minutes to complete. As well as the modules, there are optional reflection questions which can help to recommend specific modules for you.
