Children North East recognise that everyone may struggle with their mental wellbeing at some point in their lives. Young people naturally go through a huge brain development in their adolescence and this can make distinguishing normal changes from a developing mental health diagnosis difficult.
The Ways to Wellbeing programme has been developed to support you to better understand children and young people’s emotional development and to explore subjects related to mental health and wellbeing such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and eating disorders. We will offer tools and information for parents to understand and support their children’s emotional health.
In these sessions, we will offer resources and guidance to support specific emotional wellbeing concerns. We will also go through a wide range of information for those wishing to understand more about emotional wellbeing and how that relates to their children.
Who is Ways to Wellbeing for?
Parents and carers of children and young people who have concerns about the mental health and wellbeing. We also welcome adults who have concerns about a young person in their life, such as extended family and community leaders.
When and Where does Ways to Wellbeing take place?
The programme will be delivered in two hour sessions at various accessible locations across the city.
