Youth in the Know
The Youth in the Know program is funded under Primary Health Network (PHN) and provides evidence-based educational training programs to assist wellbeing in youth aged 10 – 18 years who have experienced trauma or distress because of loss and grief experiences within their lives. It’s also an opportunity for settings such as schools to have more awareness around these complex trauma issues, to assist and support their students, teachers, school staff and the extended school community. These programs are an acceptable framework within The Wellbeing Framework for Schools: Connect, Succeed and Thrive concept.
The Youth in the Know program:
Provides evidence-based educational and therapeutic group programs to young people from the age of 10 to 18 year olds.
Aims to improve the wellbeing of young people who have experienced trauma, loss and grief within their lives.
Increase awareness and understanding of these complex trauma issues among the general community, schools and other service providers.
NALAG is offering training to school staff and community leaders as part of the Youth in the Know program.
We are currently working closely with Western NSW PHN to continue the Youth in Know program during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
Upcoming dates for this program will be announced soon.
