Event description

Description

Mind's Well is offering this brand new workshop in response to an increase in the number of people experiencing psychological distress.

The reasons are complex and include budget cuts to preventative services, increased awareness about mental health and wellbeing, the 24/7 culture in which we live and many other possible explanations.

According to BBC Scotland the number of young people self-harming is on the rise. In this short video one of our volunteers talks about the issues http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-31310407

The aim of this workshop is to equip youth workers with the knowledge, skills and understanding to respond to young people in psychological distress. You will learn about teenage brain development, psychological and emotional wellbeing and techniques to improve mental health and psychological wellbeing

Objectives: Identify tell-tale signs; manage difficult or challenging behaviours such as anger, panic attacks, self-harm, suicide risk; Learn about mental health common issues.

Programme: What is Mental Health; The Adolescent Brain; Common Mental Health Concerns, Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, Self-Harm/Suicide; and Management Techniques
