Expert Insights: Prevention of Mental Illness in Adolescents - Challenges & Innovations

  • Duration
    1.5 Hours 
  • Program Outline
    This session showcases a world first research project (Future Proofing) at the Black Dog Institute, taking on the challenges of implementing a universal prevention intervention program for adolescent school students. Can a focus on prevention strategies during adolescence be the key to reducing the prevalence of mental health disorders later in life?  What are the early warning signs that can critically inform efforts to inoculate against the damaging effects of mental health issues? What are some of the challenges and opportunities in working with schools to prevent ill health?

    Future Proofing has the ambitious target of recruiting over 10,000 adolescent participants across and following them up each year over a 5-year period that will provide major innovations in what we know about trajectory of mental health in adolescents.

    Join our expert panel for this session as we explore this project and what it could mean for adolescent mental health and wellbeing.
