Event description

Description

This Huddl Up with Suffolk Mind is for parents and carers to learn about depression in children and young people.

Coping with different emotions is part of everyone’s life. We all feel happy and sad at different times. Feeling sad can be a natural and appropriate response to what is happening in our lives. Mostly, the passing of time, life changes and the support of those around us help these feelings go away.

Depression is when sadness and low feelings do not go away; when they overwhelm a person and stop them from doing the things they normally do.

Statistics from charity Young Minds clearly show that mental health is a big issue for young people…

  • 1 in 8 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s roughly 3 children in every classroom
  • 1 in 6 young people aged 16-24 has symptoms of a common mental disorder such as depression or an anxiety disorder
  • Half of all mental health problems manifest by the age of 14, with 75% by age 24
  • In 2017, suicide was the most common cause of death for both boys (16.2% of all deaths) and girls (13.3%) aged between 5 and 19
  • Nearly half of 17-19 year olds with a diagnosable mental health disorder has self-harmed or attempted suicide at some point, rising to 52.7% for young women

Early intervention is key - join this Huddl Up so that you can learn more about depression so you can best support your children and young people.

Our professional speaking at this event is:

Ezra Hewing - Head of Mental Health Education for Suffolk Mind

We will also hear from:

Nicola Nunn - a mother and teacher who will share her personal story of depression, in order to help us all learn.
