Healthy Minds Parent Information Evening – Year 8

Year 8 Parents are invited to attend Seven Secrets to a Healthy Mind—a parent seminar hosted by clinical psychologist, Dr Tom Nehmy. This seminar will introduce parents to the Healthy Minds Program, an important component of the Year 8 Ethics Curriculum.

Monday 15 February 2021
6:00pm to 7:30pm
Brisbane Girls Grammar School
Louise McDonald Room, Science Learning Centre
Limited parking will be available beneath the Cherrell Hirst Creative Learning Centre.

Dr Nehmy, who specialises in preventative psychology, created the Healthy Minds Program to provide students with skills promoting emotional wellness and resilience. During this seminar, he will demonstrate how the program:

  • builds and maintains students’ mental health and wellbeing
  • helps students understand the true meaning of ‘wellbeing’ and ‘resilience’
  • prevents and reduces the risk of students developing anxiety and depression
  • assists students to perform to the best of their abilities across academic and co-curricular activities.

For parents who cannot attend, the event will be livestreamed, with a link emailed to parents the day prior to the Information Evening. A recording of the evening will also be shared in the days following the Information Evening.
