  • In 2021, the WA Government created a Taskforce to develop a plan to make mental health services better for babies, children and young people (under 18). We need your help to develop this plan. In September, the Taskforce is running workshops with:

    - Young people who have had problems with their mental health

    - Families and carers of young people who have had problems with their mental health

    Workshop participants will be given a voucher worth $75. Some questions we might ask are: What experiences have you had of seeking help? When seeking help, what went well? Looking back, what would have made your experiences of seeking help better?

    FREE 1 HOUR WEBINAR

    Teaching Emotional Regulation Skills Research has shown that children with emotional regulation skills form stronger relationships, have fewer behavioral problems, do better at school and generally lead happier, healthier and less stressful lives. Not all children learn these skills well while growing up and need explicit teaching to develop emotional regulation skills. Without adequate guidance, children often adopt ineffective ways of dealing with stressful or difficult situations, such as aggressive, avoidance or defensive behavior. This interactive workshop will introduce you to the Taking CHARGE of My Rainbow of Emotions book and accompanying app called Rainbow of Emotions App: Teaching Emotional Regulation Skills Step by Step www.rainbowofemotions.app . These resources aim to help the individual (child, adolescent or adult) to identify, express and manage their emotions in a healthy, safe, and socially acceptable way. Come along to this workshop and learn the strategies for guiding children of all ages develop emotional regulation skills.
