Free workshops for parents


It’s no surprise the pandemic has had a major impact on the mental health of children and young people. Research this July show one in six children aged 5 to 16 years were identified as having a probable mental disorder. To put this into context, that is five children in a class of 30 children.  

We are continuing to run our successful introductory workshops for parents on mental health awareness and how you can support your child.  In addition, building on these, we have developed three more additional workshops to support you if you are caring for a child with a diagnosed mental health condition.
