‌The full title of this event is:

Preventing Risks of Mental illness Onset and Treating Early in the North East of England

Approximately 10% of children and young people (CYP) suffer from a mental health illness and yet up to 3 out of 4 of these CYP do not receive an appropriate intervention. It is a national and local priority to provide early intervention that both promotes emotional wellbeing and resilience and prevents the onset of clinical disorders. The twelve local authorities in the North East, through the Institute for Local Governance, commissioned Fuse researchers to gain more information on these issues from (1) the scientific literature, (2) mapping of local services, and from (3) the perspectives of both CYP and people that work with and care for CYP. These work streams aimed to understand which interventions (and in which contexts) are best suited to improve the mental health of CYP.

This workshop aims to feedback what have been identified as ‘best bet’ interventions for CYP aged 12 to 19. We aim for the workshop to be interactive so that delegates can discuss their views of the findings, communicate their own experience, and make suggestions on how to improve the implementation of these interventions in the North East.

The workshop is suitable for commissioners, people working with young people and their mental health concerns (teachers, healthcare professionals, and community support services), parents and carers of young people and young people themselves.

This event is free of charge to attend.
