Description

‘Working together to ‘Nip in the Bud’ the mental health challenges faced by very young children today’

With Jayne Stoke and guest speaker Sue Dixon on “how teachers can look after themselves and each other”.

Many adults with mental health disorders will have struggled, undiagnosed, for many years. In many cases these conditions will have begun in childhood or adolescence. Nip in the Bud is here to inform and educate to help recognise potential mental health conditions in children.

Teaching staff, Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs), counsellors, school nurses, teaching assistants and social workers have an ongoing, privileged opportunity of working with parents to talk about children’s welfare.

Parents evenings, parent forums and all types of school events can be used to show relevant Nip in the Bud films – gently, but assertively, informing parents and staff about potential mental health conditions, where to find medical advice, support for individuals and whole families, and address any issues of stigma or bullying relating to the condition.
