Online - A Mind of Their Own - Building Children's Emotional Wellbeing
@
Anxiety levels and poor mental health are on the rise in children and young people, and as a parent this can feel overwhelming … even at times debilitating. But there’s good news! You, as parents, have incredible power to help your children build strong emotional resilience and a healthy mental wellbeing.

This hour-long event will look at the unique opportunities and pressures facing young people today (including the COVID-19 pandemic) and explore the science of the mind, and why children act and react the way they do. We’ll consider whether this generation is less resilient or whether there really is an epidemic of anxiety.

Katharine Hill and Dr Rob Waller will share practical and preventative tools to see your children through the difficult times, as well as build resilience to guard against anxiety and depression.
