SAMH Parent Workshop at Underbank Primary School

Re-Scheduled SAMH Parent Workshop
Heather McCartney from SAMH, has now re-scheduled the workshop called Listening to and Supporting My Child, for the parents.
She will deliver the workshop at Underbank on 18th April from 9am – 10.30am.
This workshop has been specifically developed to provide parents and carers with the knowledge and skills to have mental health conversations with their child.
It explores the different stresses that children and young people experience in their lives, which can impact on their mental health and wellbeing.
The workshop helps parents and carers learn how to start conversations (finding the right time, place and way to communicate) and how to support their child even when do they do not want to talk about how they are feeling.
If you would like to attend the workshop then please respond to this email by Monday 18th March.
