The Wellbeing Team

As 2021 is coming to an end the Wellbeing Team would like to wish you all a safe and happy holiday period. Shelley Spurrier will also be farewelling St Joseph's after 6 years of being the School Counsellor. Shelley would like to say thank you and farewell to the St Joseph's community.

If you or your child need support throughout the holidays please see the below services. 

Parentline: 1300 1300 52 The Parentline is a telephone counselling, information and referral service for parents of children aged 0 to 18 who live in N.S.W. Any parent/carer can ring with no question or query being too big or small. They are open: Weekdays: 9am to 9pm Weekends: 9am to 4pm 

NSW Mental Health Access Line 1800 011 511 is staffed by mental health professionals, the line gives NSW residents access to expert mental health advice, support and referrals for people dealing with a mental health problem and their families and carers.

Kids helpline: 1800 55 1800 Kids helpline is a free national telephone counselling service for kids 5 or older meaning kids can safely access it directly. I would suggest helping your child navigate it first to help them. Any parent/carer can also ring with no question or query being too big or small. The service is open 24 hours and they can also do web chat and email counselling.
