Event Details

Eligibility

This is a half day course for people working with parents and carers of children and young people in West Sussex with mental health and emotional distress issues.

This course is being delivered through a partnership between Coastal West Sussex MindYMCA Downslink GroupWest Sussex County Council and West Sussex CCGs.

Aims and Outcomes

Carers often struggle to talk about the difficulties they experience when their child is faced with an emotional or mental health issue. They often feel isolated and don’t know who to turn to for support.

The aim of this workshop is to enhance practitioners' skills and confidence in talking about mental health issues with parents and carers in order to:

  • Raise awareness of young people’s emotional and mental health issues
  • Increase knowledge of the influence stigma, and the impact of stigma, has on carers' feelings and behaviour.
  • Help parents recognise when to seek help and support them in doing so, whilst considering the impact mental health issues have on themselves and their families.
