Inaburra School: Teen wellbeing event

Inaburra School in Sydney will host a panel discussion centred on teen mental health and wellbeing on Wednesday 16 October 2019.

The panel will feature four professionals in this field: Dr Andrew Parkin (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist), Julia London (Clinical, Educational and Developmental Psychologist), along with Inaburra Senior School Counsellors Michelle DeRieve and Maria Taylor.

They will be tackling a number of questions including:

  • What is the biggest ‘fail’ a parent can do when it comes to a child with anxiety?
  • My child spends a lot of time in their room alone. Should I be concerned?
  • My child is regularly fighting against going to school – what should I do?
  • My child is sleeping between two households, how do I create and protect a safe and stable environment?
  • My teenager appears more moody than normal, is it just hormones, or should I be looking out for something else?
  • I can see that my child’s friends are regularly having a negative effect on their wellbeing, when/how do I intervene?
