Jacinta Halloran: Writing Workshops for better Mental Health

Session Info:

As a GP specialising in youth mental health and a budding family therapist, Jacinta understands the particular issues and challenges that often concern young people during their secondary school years, and would be delighted to speak to secondary students on a variety of topics, including:

  • Optimising mental health
  • Dealing with stress
  • How to manage your family
  • Hormones and mental health

A firm believer in the psychological benefits of both reading and writing fiction, Jacinta also has experience in running writing workshops that focus on creative writing as an aid to better mental health.

Her latest novel, The Science of Appearances, a coming-of-age story of adolescent boy and girl twins in 1950s Australia, is the perfect springboard to talk about the highs and lows of adolescence and the perennial theme of ‘nature and nurture’.
