Mental Health Practitioner Initiative
Our school is excited to be part of the Mental Health Practitioners initiative. This initiative supports our school to recruit a mental health practitioner. We have been allocated funding for a practitioner for two days a week and our Mental Health Practitioner commenced Monday October 5. Students and parents are advised to contact Carmel Nielsen Student Wellbeing Coordinator if they would like to discuss their suitability to engage with the service. Please note, referral and consent documentation will be required prior to service commencement.
We are excited to have a new staff member Elaine Wong at Mount Alexander College who will make a positive contribution to supporting student wellbeing.
