About this course

What strategies are young people using to manage their mental health (outside of specialist services)? Are we well informed about what helps who and when? How can we move forward?

We would like to invite you to a workshop hosted by the Anna Freud Learning Network and the UCL Centre for Behaviour Change at UCL, at Lift in Islington on 2nd May. 

We are bringing together mental health practitioners and others who support CYP emotional wellbeing, to join us in:

  • hearing findings of a literature review of strategies being used, and their effectiveness
  • hearing feedback from our workshops with young people about what helps them and why
  • reflecting on how to communicate the knowledge we have, address the questions remaining, to best support young people and those who work with them

It is vital that we draw on a range of expertise as part of this work to better understand the range and effectiveness of non-professionally assisted strategies that young people use to manage mental health problems. We do hope you are able to join us at this collaborative workshop.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
