We would also like to thank our last minute guest Dr. Danielle Einstein who mentioned two initiatives developed to provide mental health support. These are aimed at families and students who have had to pick up a whole new set of coping strategies over the past couple of months. 

A Free WhatsApp support group (running twice a week) for parents to connect and slowly work through concerns regarding screen use as we get students back on track.

A Parent Bootcamp for being able to manage uncertainty.

Do note, while a recording of the session is available, due to a glitch we were unable to save the list of registered attendees to this particular session. If you were a participant and would like a copy of the recording kindly email us at victoria@ausdance.org.au.
