On our program we talk to the young people about the safety brieing on flight. "Put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping the children or others." 

 In an organisation full of passionate staff and volunteers, where purpose flows through the veigns of all involved, it is very easy for most to forget about looking after themselves. Hearing the heart wrenching trauma from the young people and supporting them to heal, can have a great impact on the health and wellbing of those in the trenches. The problems are so large and widespread, it is difficult to say no, and the job can seem endless. Youth Insearch has enlisted Converge as an EAP provider to help our amazing people look after themselves and each other.

I encourage all our people to go through this mental health check-in slide deck below and reflect on how you are travelling. If you feel you need support or know someone that does, use the service. Take care of yourself, the young people and your family need you.
