Mental Health for Children and Young People Conference

Date: September 14, 2017
Time: 9:30 am

Nationally, we are facing an increase in mental illness and mental health difficulties in children and young people. During the recent election, the news was full of statistics concerning our children and young people, almost a quarter a million of whom are being treated for problems such as anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Unfortunately, this worrying pattern is reflected in what we are seeing in the Sherborne area. Local schools and services are struggling to meet the needs of children and young people of all ages, and to support their families.

In the light of this, we would like to invite you to join us at a conference at The Gryphon School on 14th September 2017 between 9.30am and 12.30pm. We will explore what we, as a community, feel the needs and issues to be, identify what we are already doing and discuss how we can work together more effectively and productively. We would especially welcome your view as a parent or carer.

If you would like to book a free place, please email sarah.carroll@gryphon.dorset.sch.uk or phone the SEND office (01935 810139) by Friday 14th July 2017.
