Time to Talk at Wellbeing Coffee Morning

Pete Brown, CAMHS Link Worker talks to a group of parents and carers about the teenage brain

On Tuesday 11th June we welcomed parents and carers to an Emotional Health and Wellbeing Coffee Morning. Our guests listened to a short presentation from Ms Allen on the range of emotional health needs that teenagers may experience as well as the support that we provide in school for students and their families. Pete Brown from CAMHS gave a useful talk about the teenage brain and our learning mentor, Diana spoke about the importance of parental self-care.  The event was really well attended and several of our guests spoke frankly and shared their tips for a more harmonious family life.

We were really grateful all our visitors for coming to the event with such an open mind and a willingness to share their experience and support others.

This coffee morning was one of series of events that we have organised for parents and carers over the year.  We will be hosting more of these in the new academic year. Look out for the emails and updates on the website.

We have also planned a Positive Parenting support group to start later in the Autumn. All are welcome to join in.  We will send details of this via InTouch.
