This series of four talks by Time to Talk West Berkshire are aimed at those living with or supporting a child or young person and draws upon our collective knowledge and experience of working with this age group. These are not “how to parent” talks but rather a guide to both increase understanding and knowledge as well as provide some practical strategies for supporting both you and your child. The talks are designed to work as a complete series and as such do lead on from each other but you can also attend single talks if preferred.
In this session
An overview of Adolescent mental health in general and more specifically in West Berkshire. It will look at the issues Time To Talk frequently encounter when working with children and young people and the services available to West Berkshire to support this age group. It will also offer an insight into the process of counselling and how it can fit into the larger picture of supporting the emotional and mental wellbeing of children and young people.
