Event description
Young People and Mental Health and Wellbeing - Policy Considerations for Schools.

About this Event

In 2021 the Australian College of Educators, Flinders University College of Education, Psychology and Social Work, and the Commissioner for Children and Young People are hosting a series of Youth Policy Forums on issues impacting young people’s engagement with education. Each forum will focus on a different issue including mental health, legal issues, homelessness and transitions to employment.

The first Policy Forum is Young People and Mental Health and Wellbeing – Policy Considerations for Schools.

You will hear from our Key Note Speaker South Australian Mental Health Commissioner David Kelly. Followed by Q&A with a stakeholder panel including:

  • Professor Michael Kyrios, Vice-President and Executive Dean of the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work.
  • Steven Wright, Executive Manager of Youth Services Sonder
  • Dr Sally Gibson, Department for Education
  • Jenni Cook, Deputy Principal Mt Barker High School

Moderated by the Commissioner for Children and Young People Helen Connolly.

Designed for a broad audience of educators, youth workers, policy makers, researchers, advocates and service providers, the Forums will examine critical issues faced by young people and how we can work together to respond to the challenges.

Light refreshments will be provided free of charge courtesy of the SA Credit Union, from 4:30pm for a 5pm start.

For any inquiries please email: CommissionerCYP@sa.gov.au or phone 08 8226 3355.

The event will adhere to COVID-19 Safe Guidelines.

Tickets are limited and we expect strong interest.
