Young people and mental health evening
Teenage mental health author Janey Downshire will give a talk in Ipswich on Thursday.
Janey, a counsellor and co-author of Teenagers Translated, will be the guest speaker at an event aiming to educate parents on mental health and encouraging positive transformation in adolescents. It will also provide advice on how to deal with teenagers and modern technology,
It has been organised by Ormiston Families and takes place at The Old Crown Court in Ipswich at 7pm.
Allan Myatt, CEO of Ormiston Families, says: “I am delighted our charity is working with Janey Downshire to support local parents who are facing challenges with their teenagers.
“This comes at a time when almost 400,000 children and young people aged 18 and under are in contact with the health service for mental health problems.
“As a charity we want to provide children and young people with the strength to overcome mental health problems and provide the strategies, resilience and confidence to help them do so.”
The event is raising funds for Ormiston Families’ Mpower Ipswich service, which helps local women address issues that lead to the removal of their children into care, often due to mental health problems, debt and homelessness.
Tickets cost £25 per person. To find out more and buy tickets go to the Ormiston Families website.
