As a parent we often find ourselves ill-equipped when it comes to dealing with, or even being aware of, our child’s or young person’s mental wellbeing. In order to help them, we first need an understanding ourselves of what we mean by mental health. Second, the tools to help our young person with any emotional difficulties. The first of these two workshops are designed with this in mind and will help you to support your child or young person.
In this first workshop you will learn more about mental health and recognise the symptoms of mental health issues in children.
Learn about some of the contributing factors to a child or young person developing mental health difficulties
Understand some of the issues in Richmond including why we have the worst youth wellbeing scores in London
Look at the contributing factors that can lead to poor mental health
Have a closer look at the types of mental health issues
Focus on anxiety and how you can support a child with anxiety
Depression – the signs and how you can support someone with depression
Psychosis – from drug induced to schizophrenia
Personality disorders and the resulting behaviours
