EquiEnergy Youth is a charity aiming to reduce youth suicide, self harm and psychological distress across Australia and beyond. We deliver consulting services and training for professionals (i.e. educators, child/adolescent mental health support systems) and families to build capacity in the community to support the mental health of young people. Our approach is evidence based, stemming from thousands of hours of clinical experience and a Phd research project conducted by our Clinical Director Dr Stephen Spencer (PhD).
We coach the best way to respond to young people in distress using our psychological first aid framework called the TAR3 framework and how to develop support plans for individuals with mental health challenges. Also, among many skills, participants of our training learn how to help the young people in their care build coping, resilience and positive help seeking behaviours.
