Drought can impact children in the same way as adults – particularly when it comes to worries in the family. It is a whole-family and whole-community issue, but everyone experiences drought uniquely, and can have different reactions to the same event.

Emerging Minds and Country SA PHN have produced a series of eight podcasts for the National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health. In the podcasts you will hear from parents, practitioners and community members about practical ways that they have supported children’s mental health during drought.

The podcasts are 10-20 minutes long. With a unique lens on children aged 0-12 years, the podcasts focus on supporting their social and emotional wellbeing during times of drought.
