There's no doubt children are facing extreme stress and uncertainty at the moment. In fact, studies by the University of Melbourne and Deakin University reveal a worrying increase in children's mental health issues.
What can we do to help children cope?
Join Geelong authors, Sue Lawson and Sue Hindle, to chat about helping children recognise and navigate feelings and emotions, and share how to use their beautiful new book, You Matter - Be Your Own Best Friend.
This session is perfect for parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and all adults with young people in their lives.
