Help Support and Improve Mental Health Curriculum in Schools
I’m Beau and I am an 18-year-old Youth Advisory Group (YAG) Member for Craigieburn headspace.
I wanted to let you know about this petition I just started on Change.org, "Senator the Hon. Simon Birmingham: Mental Health Education in School Curriculum".
I developed this petition as I feel as a teen that went through secondary school with very little knowledge of mental illness’ – it needs to be an area that is introduced throughout this critical stage of learning.
I feel there is no better time than in secondary school to embed mental health education in the secondary school curriculum.
This will not only allow others to gain an understanding of different forms of mental health issues, but it will also allow for them to detect and start seeking help in the early stages of development.
