Event description

Description

Scotland is experiencing a youth mental health crisis. With increased need for support, services stretched beyond capacity and referral systems struggling to keep up it has never been more important for those working with children and young people to develop key skills to support mental and emotional wellbeing. Development of supportive mindset, practical coping strategies and resilience are key to ensuring the mental fitness of young people but would you know how to help cultivate mental fitness in the young people you work with?


This interactive workshop will bridge the gap between organisational strategic interventions and practical strategies for front line practitioners through use of simple psychological tools. The training aims:

  1. To introduce attendees to key principles around mental fitness and how this relates to safeguarding, the wellbeing framework and the wider mental health strategy for young people in Scotland.

  2. To support attendees to explore how mental fitness can be incorporated into current organisational policy and practices.

  3. To provide attendees the opportunity to both experience and learn about practical tools and strategies which can be used with young people to develop mental fitness with particular focus on stress management, supportive mindsets, opening dialogue, responding to anxiety and mindfulness.

Topics covered include:

  • What is mental fitness and how to cultivate this?

  • Pressures of modern life for young people

  • Organisational strategies to support mental fitness

  • Lifestyle interventions

  • Engaging parents/carers in supporting mental fitness.

  • Practical strategies for front-line staff
