Grapple with the complex matters of bullying, mental wellbeing, and combatting inappropriate behaviour

One-Day Conference: Monday 2nd December 2019

Post-Conference Workshop: Tuesday 3rd December 2019


The Student Bullying & Mental Wellbeing conference is back again this December, bringing together experts and leaders from primary, secondary and tertiary institutions to discuss student bullying and mental health programs, as well as examine solutions that can be practically implemented.
 
Sadly, student suicides are very much a reality and the mental health of youths is at stake. In such complex times, minority groups such as the LGBTQIA+ or those with disabilities are easy bullying targets, and parents demand to be actively involved. 

There is a grave need for a whole-school, whole-child, whole-community approach to prioritising student wellbeing; finding creative and evidence-based ways to foster resilience and student wellness.

It’s time to build a culture of empathy and inclusiveness, and together, say no to bullying
 

Attend this event and learn effective skills in:
  1. Understanding bullying in all forms: Knowing how to understand, identify, address & redress 
  2. Prioritising mental health, resilience and wellbeing initiatives to combat bullying  
  3. Implementing a whole-school approach to combat bullying 
  4. Cultivating empathy and an inclusive culture to empower the LGBTQIA+, at-risk students and students with disability 

Plus, don't miss the post-conference workshop: on Integrating Bullying & Mental Health into your Broader Student Wellbeing Programs
