Free workshops to support children's mental health
Free online workshops are being held this month and in May to help parents and carers support the mental health of the children in their care.
These workshops, provided by Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust's psychology in schools team have helped over 1800 people since the first was held in January.
Workshops available include: Understanding the adolescent brain, how to support our teenagers with their emotions and supporting young people with sleep, anxiety and low mood.
Dr Beth Mosley, consultant clinical consultant at NSFT said: “We welcome parents and those who support young people to attend these workshops. They're full of advice and opportunities to learn more about the way young people’s brains work and the power of relationships.
"We aim to make these sessions as interactive and practical as possible. You'll come away feeling empowered to make a difference not only in your child’s life but also for yourself”
A parent who recently attended the supporting young people with anxiety workshop commented: "Ideas to help children move from reassurance to self-assurance was useful as I'm often exhausted from having to constantly reassure my child."
