The SYM Project team & our project champions will be running various events throughout the year across Herefordshire for young people, parents, carers & professionals.
'Talking Straight' Events
Talking Straight events will be held within local communities. These aim to raise awareness, promote 'good' mental health & wellbeing & reduce stigma.
By engaging local communities our young project champions will act as the catayst for change & inspire community groups into action.
Workshops for Parents
Workshops for Professionals
Parents will gain information & resources to assist them to effectively support their young people.
We will help parents understand what 'good' mental health looks like & enable them to acquire skills & knowledge to recognise the early indicators in young people which may signify an issue with their mental health & wellbeing & where to signpost them for support.
Professionals will be educated to understand the impact of mental ill health on the behaviours of young people, how best to support them & where to signpost them to for support.
