St Mary’s College parents and carers are invited to attend a free facilitated information evening presented by Mitch McPherson, founder of SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY, at the College on Monday 9 April (6.00pm for a 6.30pm start).
This one-hour session will address basic mental health information, risk factors and warning signs of suicide, lived experiences of bereavement by suicide and ways of engaging young people in conversations about mental health.
Mitch will also provide information about the community-based resources available for students and parents on the topic.
The session will run for approximately one hour. Please refer to the below flyer for further details. Please send RSVPs to Ryan Flack: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 6 April.
