Counselling staff at Our Lady of Mercy College involved in the provision of mental health services for students are initiating strategies to ensure those students currently accessing these services can continue to be supported while learning online.
Your child has the option to continue being supported by Mrs Vikki Merritt via tele-counselling. To assist you to understand this service, please refer to the information below.
Should your child not wish to engage with tele-counselling, please be reminded of online services that they can access for support such as:
Kids Helpline – 1800 55 1800 – https://kidshelpline.com.au/
Headspace – 1800 650 890 – eheadspace.org.au
Parents may also contact the following services:
Mental Health Emergency Response Line - https://www.mhc.wa.gov.au/getting-help/helplines/mental-health-response-line/
Family Help line: 9223 1100
Parenting WA Line: 6279 1200
Crisis Care (Crisis counselling): 9223 1111
There is a great deal of uncertainty currently for many parents and the College would like to assure you that we will continue to not just meet the educational needs of your child, but also support their mental health needs.
Please contact Mrs Vikki Merritt via email firstname.lastname@example.org or SEQTA if you have any concerns regarding your child’s wellbeing.
