Project 5 Conference Supporting & Understanding Anxiety, Mental Health in Children

£30 – £75

SUPPORTING & UNDERSTANDING ANXIETY, MENTAL HEALTH IN CHILDREN

FOR PROFESSIONALS & PARENTS SUPPORTING CHILDREN WITH ANXIETY & EMOTIONAL MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS

1 in 8, 5-19-year-olds suffer from a mental disorder (NHS, 2018). Increased referrals to mental health services and CAMHS have reached the equivalent of 183 every day!
Nationally we need to raise Mental health Awareness. This conference will be a comprehensive and valuable day for practitioners and parents and will provide information and skills to help young people beat anxiety. The day will cover early experience and health impacts, causes of anxiety, anxiety in those with additional needs and making connections to find the right support for children. There will be an opportunity to network, explore resources, share ideas and hear from experts and organisations in the field and at the forefront of services.
The Conference has been planned as a follow-up to our Project 5 programme pilot, designed by JIGSAW. The programme of 6 sessions was influenced by Mind’s 5 areas to Wellbeing and runs alongside a journal and promotes awareness and resilience in managing anxiety and stress amongst young people.
