What does the program offer?

This one day program provides an opportunity for practitioners to hear from international experts on strategies to effectively identify transition challenges that young people face. The program offers two international keynote speakers who will focus on both the macro and micro system challenges to engagement in education and training and the impact of mental health and wellbeing on the capacity of young people to move past barriers towards resilient behaviours and better decision making. Participants will be able to attend three workshops that unpack practical interventions that support mental health and wellbeing in young people during transitions.
