Children's Worries- Virtual Information Session

Information session for Parents/Carers about Children’s worries - Tuesday 18th May, 10.00 - 11.00 a.m. (online)

        Worries and anxieties are a normal part of life.  However, they can become a problem if they prevent us from leading a full and active life. 

In the session we will explain some key points that can help you as parents, how school interventions can support your child and also how our Educational Mental Health Practitioner from the Mental Health Support Team can deliver evidence-based therapies within school also. Let’s work together to help reduce our children’s worries.
