FDR

This is a reposting of a Child Family Community Australia event – The meeting booking link is:  https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1373670862090076427

Presenters: Frank Oberklaid,  Anthea Rhodes, Rhys Price-Robertson

Wednesday, 12 August 2020 1:00–2:00 pm AEST. Find your time zone.
Getting the language of child mental health right is a crucial step in building a shared understanding, connecting children to supports and preventing mental health difficulties into the future. It is relatively common for children to experience mental health problems. Yet, without a shared understanding of child mental health between parents, communities and service providers, children may not receive the support they need.

This webinar is the first of a two-part series exploring the importance of language in advancing child mental health. Building on a past CFCA webinar that focused on diagnosis in child mental health, this webinar will:

explore how mental health literacy affects how parents access support for their children
consider the risks and benefits of applying diagnostic labels to children
propose a way forward for talking about child mental health.
This webinar is of interest to professionals working with children and families in health, education and social and community service settings.
