‘Developing Help Seeking Behaviour in Adolescents’
Despite the rather awful weather lashing Sydney, more than 40 students from 6 schools across Eastern Sydney participated in our annual Youth Week Forum last week. Guest speakers included Woollahra Mayor Toni Zeltzer and Waverley Police Youth Liaison Officer, Corey Williams and the Forum was officiated by the Waverley Mayor Sally Betts.
Facilitated by WAYS counselling, teaching and case management staff; students from Year 9-12 participated in workshops across themes including; Mental Health, Porn and Relationships and Cyber bullying.
More than 60% of participants indicated that their knowledge/skills on topics following the forum were very good compared with only 17% before the forum
