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
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.
Workshops for Professionals
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.
