Undiagnosed Mental Health/Poor Choices

If left untreated some mental health conditions can severely impact on a young person’s development and life fulfilment (Connell et al., 2012).

The Story of Jayden Undiagnosed Mental Health/Poor Choices

Jayden’s home life is busy! He has two parents that are constantly at odds with each other. He also has heaps of aunties and uncles, friends and cousins that pop in to visit them, all the time. Things start to go pear shaped for Jayden when he starts falling behind in school. His teacher Miss Jansen wants to support him, but Jayden doesn't know how to ask for help. By the end of the play he mixes with the wrong crowd of kids and ends up in trouble with the police.

This script explores early intervention support tactics to encourage students to identify community service support and the consequences of making poor choices.
