A ground-breaking national circuit, the seminars bring together leading experts in youth mental health and equip participants with the knowledge, skills and tools to better look after the wellbeing of the young people they work with. Specifically, it provides them with the latest updates in relation to specific mental illnesses, prevention and early intervention strategies as well as options for support, self-care and management of mental illnesses. The issues addressed in the seminar each year are determined based on consultation with experts in youth mental health, and tackle the most current mental health conditions alongside emerging mental illnesses. Past topics have included self-harm, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, alcohol and drug dependency, etc.
