Caring for students

We're here to help and advise you, the students of Albion Park High School. If you encounter problems or have an issue there are many people you can talk to: any teacher, your Year Adviser, the Head Teacher of Teaching and Learning, Head Teacher of Welfare, or one of the School Counsellors. Students are monitored and supported by their Year Advisers, in close consultation with parents.

Summary Report - Support in tough times

Encouraging young people to seek help for their friends

The NSW Commission for Children and Young People was established in 1999 as an independent statutory agency to promote the welfare, safety and well-being of children and young people aged 0-17 years. It plays a strong role in promoting the participation of children and young people in the decisions that affect their lives, and makes recommendations to government and non-government agencies to improve policies, programs and services for children and young people.

The Mental Health Commission of NSW was set up in 2012 to review and advise on services and programs, or other issues, affecting people living with a mental illness. It also advocates for policies and practices that support community wellbeing and help people who experience mental illness to live well according to their choices and priorities.

The Commission's first task was to develop a draft Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW, which it delivered to Government this year. The Plan was the result of an extensive community consultation, and it proposes reform of the mental health system built on the values of Respect, Recovery, Community, Quality, Equity, Citizenship, and Hope.

As an independent statutory agency, the Commission will guide, monitor and report on the progress of reform to people who live with mental illness and their families and carers, the community, the Minister for Mental Health or to the NSW Parliament.

It will also bring together agencies and organisations that can contribute to change at state and regional levels, and support them to build positive collaboration focused on producing real, measurable improvements in people's lives.

And it will ensure its own work and that of others reflects the priorities of people who experience mental illness in their life and their carers by involving them at all stages.
