Men­tal health talks

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

PAR­ENTS des­per­ate for in­sight into the minds of their chil­dren are urged to at­tend the ground­break­ing Can We Talk fo­rum.

A panel of lead­ing men­tal health ex­perts will join with the NRL’s State of Mind am­bas­sadors Nathan Hind­marsh and Dene Halatau for the event, to be held at Camp­bell­town Catholic Club on May 18.

The panel wants to hear in­di­vid­ual sto­ries to help par­ents and car­ers try to recog­nise when some­thing is wrong and pro­vide in­for­ma­tion about sup­port ser­vices in the com­mu­nity so they

know when and how to take ac­tion.

The fo­rums are also part of a wider cam­paign by The

Sun­day Tele­graph to help break the stigma sur­round­ing men­tal health.

The Sun­day Tele­graph has part­nered with headspace, the NRL, The Univer­sity of Syd­ney and Club­sNSW for the event, which fol­lows the suc­cess of Can We Talk fo­rums held in Syd­ney and re­gional NSW last year. Fo­rum com­mences 6.30pm (sharp) and con­cludes at 8.30pm. Book­ings are es­sen­tial. De­tails: 123con­tact­ Can-We-Talk-Camp­bell­town
