Supporting a young person through their mental health journey can be a challenging journey for you also. But you don't have to do it alone.


Below are some great resources to explore that can help equip and support you as you journey alongside your young person! 

headspace panel:
helping young people through unpredictable times

headspace and Lead by Story present this panel conversation about how we can help young people through unpredictable times. A great resource for parents, educators and anyone in the support network surrounding a young person.


As part of the Disaster Resilience Program, in collaboration with headspace Gosford & Lake Haven and CAHMS the following panel conversation considers what lockdowns have taught us about youth mental health and how we can prepare for unpredictable events in the future.

PANELISTS: Patrick Sharples, a clinical lead at headspace who has done a significant amount of work in the area of alcohol and other drugs, Gordon Lau AKA Gordo, an award winning GP who works at headspace Gosford one day a week, and Erin Manu, the head teacher for welfare at Gorokan High School.

How educators can support young people through unpredictable times

Chloe Ryan, an education consultant for headspace schools shares her story and provides insights into how to build mental health in educational settings, both for staff and teachers, and flowing onto students and families. We speak through the 4 pillars of the 'We Made it to Here' Disaster Resilience Program, and consider how these could be applied in educational settings.


This resource hub has been created in collaboration with headspace Gosford and Lake Haven, as part of the Disaster Resilience Program funded by the Hunter, New England & Central Coast Primary Health Network.
