Development of family, carer and staff mental health literacy resources is part of the Key Area of Family Centred Care. The aim is to design and implement campus wide education, training and support in mental health literacy for families, carers and the workforce. Families, carers and staff will have access to education and resources to know when and how to seek help early for a child or young person experiencing mental health concerns, and optimise their wellbeing. This objective will also support skills to help families and carers navigate mental health services. This recognises that ‘right place right time’ mental health education can promote the early identification and access to mental health support for children and young people. Families, carers and consumers will be engaged in the development of education, tools and support within this objective.
