CHILDREN, teens and young adults in the northern suburbs can access free emotional and mental wellbeing workshops.
Direction Psychology has received government funding from the WA Primary Health Alliance to run a series of group therapy programs in Joondalup and Stirling for people aged nine to 25.
“With the concerning rise of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide in young people, our aim is to provide mental health programs to those who may not usually be able to afford to access them,” group co-ordinator Jess McCallum said.
Seven different programs will run starting Monday, May 6, ranging from self-esteem building, mood management for anxiety, and mindfulness for stress and feeling overwhelmed.
There is an eligibility criteria. Contact Jess at email@example.com.
