Today, parents face a multitude of modern-day challenges in raising happy and resilient young people. Approximately one third of Australian young people experience a mental health disorder with anxiety disorders being the most common. Whilst a great deal of information is available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.
With assistance from the College P&F, Our Lady of Mercy College has recently partnered with SchoolTV to create a customised wellbeing resource for families of our College Community. This online resource is designed to provide parents and guardians with realistic, practical information and ongoing support strategies for you and your child.
The purpose of SchoolTV is to provide a single resource for parents about a specific topic, to streamline reputable information from leading specialists. Content is based around major topics of influence and is delivered via a series of videos presented by leading youth health specialist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg.
Families can access this resource, free of charge, through the College's Wellbeing webpage: School TV - Wellbeing Resources for Parents
Each month a new topic will be presented and introduced by Dr Michael Carr-Gregg.
Some topics will include:
Health and Body
SchoolTV delivers topics and special reports that enable you to stay informed, empowered and up-to-date in navigating the path to raising happy and resilient young people.
Today’s youth are faced with many challenges. Part of good parenting is understanding these challenges and supporting kids as they navigate the path to adulthood.
I highly recommend that parents make a quick visit to the webpage to familiarise themselves with these excellent resources.
