Information for Parents and Carers

It is not always easy to read young people, if fact, it can often be quite difficult and confronting.

As a parent, knowing the difference between age-appropriate adolescent behaviours (ie: occasional irritability or changes in mood) and emerging mental health issues can be a challenge.

The Headspace Fact Sheet below provides some helpful information and tips on how parents and carers can identify if their young person is struggling with their mental health, and support them through a tough time.

If you think your child may need some assistance, we encourage you to be in touch with our wellbeing team (wellbeing@ignatius.vic.edu.au) who are more than willing to support.
