Supporting the Mental Health and Wellbeing of Primary School Children and their Families
Join our interdisciplinary panel of experts for a discussion about how can we best support a family in both the home and school environment.

  • an increased awareness of the benefits of collaboration between mental health practitioners across primary school, health and community settings
  • strategies to achieve effective and timely collaboration to support primary school-aged children experiencing mental health difficulties and their families
  • an increased awareness of the benefits and opportunities for involvement with initiatives such as KidsMatter when working with primary school-aged children.
