Background:

The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is a key priority across Cheshire & Merseyside. 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 in March 2017, at which it was decided to work together on self-harm. This follow up event will focus on the emotional wellbeing of vulnerable young people; considering the recommendations in the report ‘Case for Change: Self-harm in Children and Young People’ (Liverpool John Moores University) and at approaches to adverse childhood experiences and keeping children out of care through systemic family therapy.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Enhanced skills and knowledge of preventative approaches for vulnerable children and young people
  2. Shared knowledge and understanding of the latest evidence on self-harm in young people
  3. Understanding of the impact of adverse childhood experiences on the emotional wellbeing of children and young people
  4. Application of systemic family therapy for keeping children out of care
  5. Development of joint actions, both local and shared, to improve the outcomes for vulnerable children and young people
