Event description
SAFEMinds: In Practice intends to establish SAFEMinds 'Champions' within NSW Department of Education schools.

About this Event

Due to COVID19, SAFEMinds: In Practice, traditionally delivered face to face over 1 full day, has been adapted to a webinar format for NSW Department of Education.

Before registering, please ensure you will be available and present for the entirety of the training. This webinar is interactive, with group discussions as well as individual and group activities, please ensure you are present and uninterrupted during the training to participate fully.

SAFEMinds In Practice participants will;

  • Develop an understanding of mental health in children and young people and how they are supported through SAFEMinds and the NIP in in the bud! early intervention approach.
  • Develop an understanding of self harm in schools, children and young people and how to respond using the NIP it in the bud! early intervention approach.
  • Be introduced to the NIP it in the bud! Toolkit, including the Safe and Healthy Bodies and Safe and Healthy Minds Brief Intervention Kits and explore the toolkit with a case study from SAFEMinds Online.
  • Be provided an opportunity to use the entire NIP it in the bud! early intervention approach and Toolkit resources through a new case study.
  • Reflect on local implementation of the NIP it in the bud! early intervention approach in your school community and develop an understanding of SAFEMinds: At Home resources for families.

SAFEMinds: In Practice equips school staff to become 'Champions' in the use of the NIP it in the bud! early intervention approach and SAFEMinds Toolkit resources including the SAFEMinds Online materials and how to incorporate SAFEMinds into the school's existing professional learning and student wellbeing policies and initiatives.

For participants to get the most benefit out of this training, it is recommended the school send at least three staff.

SAFEMinds is a professional learning and resource package for schools and families that aims to:

  • Enhance early intervention mental health support for children and young people in schools; specifically regarding mild mood disorders and self-harm.

  • Develop clear and effective referral pathways between schools and community youth and mental health services.
