Parent and Carer Support and Information Sessions on Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Issues

The next Information and Support Session for Parents and Carers who are concerned about their pre-teen or teenager’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health takes place on Wednesday 5 June at Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre, 11-15 Moredunvale Place, Edinburgh EH17 7LB (Car Park available).

Each session has a different topic focus and there is an opportunity for parents and carers to meet other parents and supportive professionals in a safe relaxed environment. Parents and carers of 11-18 year olds from in and around Edinburgh are welcome to book to attend any of the sessions.   The session on 5 June is on Self Harm.

This session will hopefully increase parents' and carers' understanding about Self Harm and offer some practical ways they can help young people who may consider or display self-harming behaviour.  

The session will be facilitated by Torin Forest from Penumbra Edinburgh Self Harm Project. Torin provides information, advice and support to parents and family members of young people who self-harm and has lived experience of self-harm and recovery.

Survey on Neglect

Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect.  As part of this they are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting.  They have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete.  By completing this survey, you are helping to ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe.   Closing date for responses is 18 March. 

***************************************
