For the past 10 years headspace Schools have been working across the country, supporting Australian schools across the spectrum of mental health literacy, suicide prevention, risk management, and recovery.
Kristen Douglas is the National Manager and Head of headspace Schools. Kristen joins us as today’s podcast guest to chat about the importance of a whole school approach in promoting student wellbeing. We also discuss the role of educators and administrators in preparing for and responding to suicide risk, attempts and suicide impacting schools.
As well as this, we chat about understanding the key components of suicide prevention and postvention work as well as how to mitigate against the risk of suicide clusters forming. Welcome to the podcast, Kristen.
