Event description

Description

As children grow up through their teens and into adulthood, they go through big changes in their behaviour, emotions and feelings. This is natural but for many teenagers, school, their social and family life can be challenging. But for some, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and self-harm or suicidal thoughts are a few of the deeply troubling problems they may experience. So how do we spot the signs of mental health difficulties and what can be done to help vulnerable young people who need support? For those caring for them, difficult decisions have to be made. What is going on in a teenager’s developing brain? How do you diagnose a condition that may change as they mature? Are medicines the only answer, or are there other ways to help prevent emotional distress? We invite young people, their families, teachers and carers to join a discussion on this important issue. Find out what is going on in the brains of young people whose mental health is challenged and the treatment options available to them. Discover how new ways of thinking can help them manage anger, build confidence and improve their well-being. And our experts want to hear your views too.

Target audience: Young people, parents, carers, teachers and the general public
