Community Conversations – Self Harm in Young People (2 hours; max number of participants 20)

According to a study by Young Minds, 1 in 12 young people and children are thought to self harm. CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) have seen a huge spike in referrals for self harm in the last few years with no sign of change. This seminar sets out to explore the current rise in self harm and how it is related to young people’s mental health. Why do young people self harm? We will look at the practicalities of the “do’s and don’ts” around supporting someone who discloses self harm and the challenges for youth workers, volunteers and school staff relating to self harm issues.


Community Conversations – Stress, Pressure and Meltdown: Building Resilience in our Families (2 hours; max number of participants 20)

Families face more pressures and strains than ever. With our hectic lifestyle we seem to have increasingly less time to spend together. Come and join Tanya Harris (Head of Services) and Philippa Carr (Recovery Education Manager) to explore how our children’s and our own emotional wellbeing are interlinked and how we can kick-start those much needed conversations.


Mental Health in the Jewish Community (1 hour plus Q&A; max number of participants 50)
