Empowering Parents

Without early intervention, mental health difficulties evident in early childhood can become significant mental health problems in later life. Yet research shows that only a small number of children with mental health difficulties are likely to be referred on for further treatment. Parents and carers are ‘gateway providers’ for children’s access to services. As ‘gateway providers’ parents and carers help-seeking behaviours can influence whether a child obtains help or not. This workshop aims to provide parents with mental health knowledge, an ability to recognise persistent and concerning behaviours in their child and skills to seek suitable professional support. (*Best run in conjunction with our Junior Wellbeing Workshop)
