Children’s Mental Health Week Webinar – Meet Me in the Middle

February 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

A webinar for professionals and volunteers working with young people as part of Children’s Mental Health Week with South Glos Mental Health.

Meet Me in the Middle – Tuesday 23 February (13.00-14.30)  Where and how can we support a young person with additional needs? Well, we need to meet them in the middle!

Often young people with additional needs are forced to fit in with social situations and their environment. We encourage them to use tools to cope and manage their pressures and stress. However, we all have a responsibility to rethink our behaviours, our environments, and our communication to enable a young person with additional needs to join in. This will ultimately improve their mental health and anxiety levels.

This session will discuss: what we can all do simply, how we can look at our environments, behaviours, and communication to meet people with additional needs in the middle, and reduce anxiety, improve connection and communication.

Lindsey Hall, our Training Coordinator, will deliver this free webinar by Zoom.
