Parent and Carer Events
As a parent and carer, it can be difficult to understand how to support your young person through this period of change and uncertainty whilst maintaining good mental health.
All Australians have had to adapt to major changes in the way we live, study and work due to coronavirus (COVID-19) which has challenged the mental health and wellbeing for many.

Strengthen your understanding of mental health and the impacts of COVID-19
Build skills and strategies to support the mental health of your young person, including their transition to work and study
