Why is this conference relevant?
We saw a 59% increase in counselling sessions about anxiety in 2016/17 compared with 2014/15 (Not Alone Anymore: Childline Annual Review 2016-17).
With mental health problems on the rise and anxiety in young people at the highest level to date, it’s vital that you have the skills and knowledge you need to offer meaningful support to all students.
This event is your opportunity to network with leading experts and practitioners in the independent sector to take away proven strategies and resources to support mental health challenges and stay up to date on the latest risks to keep your students safe.
