The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is a key priority across Cheshire & Merseyside and the Directors of Public Health have been working together with the Directors of Children’s Services on new ways of working to improve emotional wellbeing. A prioritisation event was held last year, where a new priority of self-harm was chosen to work on together. This follow up event will focus on keeping children out of care by looking at approaches such as adverse childhood experiences and systemic family therapy. It will also cover self-harm including a new evidence report from Liverpool John Moores University.
- Enhanced skills and knowledge of preventative approaches for children and young people
- Shared the latest evidence on self-harm in young people
- Increased understanding of how the three topic areas overlap and connect
- Development of a local action plan for keeping children out of care
Who should attend?
Directors & Assistant Directors of Children’s Services, Directors of Public Health, Public Health Teams, CCGs, Social Workers, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Midwives and other colleagues working with children and young people in Cheshire & Merseyside.
