Mark Smith, local teacher and excellent facilitator with Mental Health First Aid Australia recently spent three mornings with our year 10 students. He shared information and discussed a variety of mental health issues and first aid. Mark guided students about when and how to encourage their friends to seek adult help. Thanks to Mental Health First Aid Australia and to the Rotary Club of Byron Bay who supports this initiative in local schools. Students each received a manual for young people to help their friends.
