Students attend Wellbeing Workshop

On Wednesday 16 May sixty-two Year 10 and SIEU students attended the TeamHEALTH Mind Blank wellbeing presentation in the Theatrette.

Mind Blank is a highly acclaimed interactive performance which addresses wellbeing issues from a student perspective. The performance is a form of education for middle and senior students in the Northern Territory focusing on positive mental health, wellbeing and help seeking techniques.

The forum theatre performance has a focus on empowering young people to make positive life decisions and reinforces positive decision making and the ability to have these positive discussions in front of peers, whilst also allowing the young people to feel in control and connected to the scenarios as they may relate to their own lives.

The audience is shown a “worse-case” mental health scenario from start to finish. Then the cast of the show replay certain scenes, taking suggestions from the audience as to how the conflicts could be better resolved. This project aims to increase the number of individuals seeking help regarding their emotional and social wellbeing and increase the identification, referral and treatment of at-risk individuals by service systems and professionals.

Anyone who would like more information or support on depression or suicide can contact Headspace or Beyond Blue.

Darwin High School Year Level Coordinators, Assistant Principals and School Counsellor are always available for student support as well.
