Fortis Therapy & Training announce ‘Children and Young People’s Mental Health’, a day-long conference for those working with children, young people and families across schools, organisations, charities and local authorities. This is the latest conference from the award-wining business, who have tackled subjects such as mental health in the workplace and whole-school wellbeing approach, previously.
Alexis Powell-Howard, Psychotherapist and Managing Director of Fortis Therapy and Training, said: “We’re incredibly passionate about early intervention. When you help children and young people early on, research has shown that the right support can have a positive impact as they become adults, too. We support young people with their mental health every day – our youngest client is just four years old – which is why it is so important to us to make this topic the focus of our next conference.”
During the day, delegates will hear from expert speakers covering a variety of current topics, including TEDx speaker, Andrew Whitehouse of People First Education, who will discuss the link between special educational needs (SEN) and mental health, and Ruth Fox, a published author who, due to her experiences, is an advocate for effective mental health support for children and young people. Alexis will also address attendees to speak about trauma and trauma support for young people, something that Fortis’ team of associate therapists help with daily.
In addition to this, delegates can attend two of six informative and interactive workshops, which will allow them to explore the day’s topics in more depth, taking home actionable ideas and strategies.
