Event description

Description

Presented by Helping Minds.

With mental health problems on the rise, it is important that parents and families are given the knowledge and tools to recognise if their child is experiencing mental health problems, what to do about it and how to raise resilient children.

Approximately 50% of mental health conditions occurring before the age of 14*, and almost 75% of mental health conditions before the age of 25*. Given these statistics, there needs to be a focus on building resilience from birth to reduce the risk of future mental health problems.

Research shows** that there are 4 main areas of building resilience in young children, these are listed below:

  1. Build, strengthen and promote supportive relationships

  2. Focus on autonomy and responsibility

  3. Create opportunities for personal challenge

  4. Focus on managing emotions

We will discuss:

  • – What mental health and mental health conditions are
    – What mental health conditions look like in adults and children
    – COPMI (Children of Parents with a Mental Illness)
    – Factors that increase the chance of developing mental health problems
    – Discussion and tips on raising resilient children
    – Where to get help

    This workshop is recommended for parents of children between 3 and 10 years old.
