General practice is often the starting point for young people seeking professional help. This webinar will focus on tips to create a safe space for young people to feel comfortable working with you and provides GPs with the skills to connect in a non-threatening open-hearted way.

Sydney North Health Network and The BlackDog Institute invites GPs, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Pharmacists and LHD staff to join us before the Christmas period which can be a challenging time but an opportunity for teens to reach out to their GP.
