Mullumbimby High P&C President, Damian Farrell, is inviting parents to a forum on the adolescent brain and risk-taking behaviours, to be held Monday, November 9, from 6pm at the Societa Bistro, Mullumbimby RSL.
Mr Farrell says ‘Emma Treanor, from Youth Safe, will present an evening where participants can find out what makes young people tick, what kinds of risk taking behaviours are common in young people, and why’.
‘Participants can learn practical, take-home strategies to help support your child’s transition to adulthood. Youth Safe are a charity that partners with government, schools, business and community organisations to prevent unintentional injury of young Australians.
‘The evening will be facilitated by local psychologist Peter Chown.
‘The evening is targeted at parents whose children may be learning to drive now or in the coming years’.
Mr Farrell added that the presenter and facilitator will give a talk at Mullumbimby High School to the students the following day. Owing to COVID-19 restrictions, forty persons are permitted with a suggested $10 donation for entry. To book, email: [email protected].
