Description

*** THIS EVENT HAS HAD TO BE POSTPONED AND WILL BE TAKING PLACE AT A LATER DATE ***



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

Sleep is as important to our health as eating, drinking and breathing. Insomnia and poor quality sleep are linked to physical ill health as well as mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

This Huddl Up helps to raise awareness of the importance of sleeping well and the impact that this can have on our children and young peoples daily life. Advice, practical tools and techniques will be given based on knowledge of up to date sleep research.
