Introduction to Children and Young People’s Mental Health
Children and young people’s mental health is everybody’s business and having an awareness of mental health issues enables us to better identify and support children and young people in need.
This presentation will enable participants from a wide range of backgrounds to:
- Identify early mental health risk factors and consider ways in which to reduce further risk and build resilience
- Promote the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.
Social media and mental health
This workshop is for anyone who wants to understand young people’s use of social media and the impact this may have on their mental health and wellbeing. As the first generation to grow up using technology as a primary means of socialisation and communication, young people today face new pressures and challenges that those working with and supporting them would benefit from understanding in order to offer effective support. This workshop introduces some practical considerations when thinking about young people’s use of social media.
This workshop is for anyone working with children in a primary or nursery setting. The workshop will explore behaviour and mental health in the context of child development and offer insight into support that we may be able to offer children who we are worried about.
