To mark World Mental Health Day on October 10th 2018, we will be hosting a free to attend educational event. The event is open for teachers, SENCO workers and teaching assistants from secondary schools.
The day will consist of short presentations from psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists from our Child and Adolescent team and cover topics that we know are pertinent to schools. They will include:
- Understanding the Teenage Brain
- Neuroscience and Attachment
- Eating Disorders
- Self Harm
- Assessments for Autism
In the afternoon, there will be a panel from the team for you to ask questions in regard to topic areas or problems you are managing in school.
We hope the day will help you to have a greater understanding of teenage mental health and to feel better equipped to manage the problems you are experiencing.
