Engaging with children and parents with complex needs – a systems approach webinar
Emerging Minds and Mental Health Professionals' Network (MHPN), Australia, 2019
The webinar featured a facilitated interdisciplinary panel discussion of a case study. The panel comprised of Dr Jamie Lee (Psychologist) and Professor Leonie Segal (Psychiatrist). Dan Moss, Emerging Minds’ Workforce Development Manager facilitated the discussion.
This webinar focused on the nexus between research and practice with children at risk of abuse and neglect. At the webinar’s completion, participants will be able to:
- identify how to collect and analyse information about clients in ways that can improve service delivery, service design and effectiveness of treatment of children at risk of abuse.
- describe best practice models for individual practitioners and organisations to develop strategies to collect, record and analyse data to inform and improve systematic early intervention and prevention of children’s mental health.
- identify how partnerships can be developed between practitioners, organisations, academic institutions and researchers to maximise opportunities for change and improved practice.

Child mental health literacy: What is it and why is it important?Lucy Tully, Mark Dadds and David HawesOver the past 20 years, Australia has emerged as a leader in campaigns that have focused on increasing mental health literacy, particularly for adult/adolescent depression and anxiety disorders. But what about child mental health literacy, which refers to adult knowledge and beliefs about mental health problems for children under 12 years of age? Aside from the recent work of the Emerging Minds: National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health (NWCCMH) and beyondblue's BeYou initiative, there has been a noticeable lack of focus on child mental health literacy both in Australia and internationally.
