Mastering Children’s Mental Health In The Digital Age

8 August @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mastering Children’s Mental Health

BEING SEEN is a global initiative that provides tools to empower parents, educators, clinicians, and policy-makers to promote children’s mental health, digital literacy, and wellness in the digital age.

There is an urgent need for a collective effort to reshape how society, tech companies, parents, educators, clinicians, and policymakers prioritise and protect our youngest users in the digital age and ensure that children are SEEN by healthy adults more than by screens.

On August 8, 2024, a forum will be held at South Bank TAFE.

The forum will feature leading experts:

  • Sam Jockel, CEO of Parent TV and producer of the SEEN documentary, helping parents have the tools to be the parents they want to be.
  • Melanie Pilling, Deputy Editor of the Courier Mail, will discuss the origins and stories of the “Let Them Be Kids” campaign and effecting change at the policy and government level.
  • Professor Selena Bartlett, Neuroscientist and Author of BEING SEEN, discussing why parents and educators are the most effective way to protect children’s mental health for their life.
