Ahead of the Game helps parents develop the skills and knowledge they need to understand, recognise and support the mental health and wellbeing of their teenagers.
As part of the program, parents will attend one workshop. The session will help parents gain an understanding of mental health challenges so they become easier to recognise. They’ll also learn how to start conversations about mental health. By the end of the workshop, parents will have a deeper understanding of the support resources available.
