Group awareness and wellbeing workshops

Life can be difficult for children and young people; Research shows that at least 1 in 10 children will have a diagnosable mental health condition by the age of 16 (Children's society, 2008) and current CAMHS statistics shown a rising increase in referrals for specialist mental health support.

These supportive and informative group sessions aim to empower parents, caregivers and professionals through providing them with information about Mental Health and Wellbeing and discussing strategies which can help young people to thrive in their environment.

It is hoped that by attending the workshops, parents, carers and professionals will have increased knowledge, confidence and a toolkit of skills to use at home.

Workshops last 1.5 hours and cost £16pp (unless stated otherwise).

I am a fully qualified, insured and experienced mental health practitioner working with children and families and have qualifications in delivering training and information, advice and guidance.

Please note - these workshops have previously also be tailored for community groups such as scouts/guides, sports clubs and youth clubs as well as for charities and the voluntary sector. Bespoke packages available.
