FASD workshop - pregnancy

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Workshop

Mental Health Carers NSW are running Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) awareness training on the 8th of November. As approximately 90% of individuals living with FASD have a dual diagnosis with a severe mental health problem, many of their families and carers will at some stage become mental health carers.

This workshop runs for 2 hours and is targeted at clinicians as well as families, carers and consumers.

The training will be facilitated by the National Organisation of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (NOFASD).

The course will cover:

  • What is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)?
  • Causes of FASD
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Common behaviours with FASD
  • The process of diagnosis
  • Strategies and tips for responding to FASD
  • Support for parents, families and practitioners in your local area
  • Where to go for further resources

Date: 8 November 2016, 1.00pm – 3.00pm
MHCN, Level 5, 80 William St, Woolloomooloo

Cost: The course is free for families/carers/consumers and $40 for clinicians.
