Overview: As a part of the ESES SSPs as Centres of Excellence initiative, Woniora Road School has created a guide of how to use the latest developments in both mental health research and technology to develop and foster wellbeing. BeyondBlue estimates that 26.4% of Young Australians have experienced a mental health disorder in the last 12 months. Additionally, It is estimated that 75% of these young people do not access any mental health support. There is emerging evidence and excitement around the utility of online eMental Health resources to reach this section of the community. Participants will learn a range of strategies around the use of resources and technologies to enable their school to support students to connect and engage with mental health support.
