headspace encourages parents to keep an eye on changes in behaviour
Heading back to school can be a difficult time for some young people, but local health service headspace, is ready to help.
Clinical Lead at headspace Bathurst, Melinda Lake, said there can be a number of reasons that can make returning to school difficult.
“It’s not uncommon for young people to have difficulty making new friends, feel pressured to achieve, encounter bullying orto experience a mental health concern. These stressors can make the next few weeks an uncertain time,” Ms Lake said.
