Parent Forum

 

Principal Karen Jebb welcoming Dr Michael Carr-Gregg to our Parent Forum on Anxiety and Depression in young people.

 

An audience of over 800 met in the Louise Humann Centre and were entertained by Dr Michael’s charisma and his ability to explain with great clarity, the impact of our changing world on the mental health of our young people.

Parents were left with some salient tips on how to best support a young person who is struggling with unhealthy levels of anxiety while Our Lady of Sion College staff were comforted in the knowledge that what we are doing with our commitment to Beyondblue’s Senseability program in the Pastoral Program and apps like 'Smiling Minds' are some of the best ways for a school to support improved mental health in their students.
