Had some good laughs with GP, former Headspace worker and all round top bloke Dr Chris Ganora.  I was way too ambitious with the list of areas I wanted to cover as youth mental health is wide ranging and deep in content.  So this is really more a "concept" overview and we shall have to revisit this area - many many times!  

We cover building trust and getting a good history as that forms the crucial basis to any therapy and relationship.  We discuss the HEADS acronym (or CHEEADSSS now, not quite the same ring to it), rapport building and general tips and thoughts from our experiences.  Plus - Never forget risk assessment!

Some good resources:

Headspace centres and website

Black Dog institute

Centre for Clinical Interventions -

Online psychotherapy programs like Moodgym and This Way Up

Enjoy friends!
