This programme is delivered to parents/guardians in a range of settings such as community organisations and schools and lasts approximately two and a half hours.
It highlights the need for parents/guardians to look after their mental health in order to be able to support their child’s emotional health and wellbeing.

It gives participants skills and knowledge which can be used to maintain or regain good mental health and build resilience to deal with life’s challenges. In addition it gives participants problem solving knowledge, skills and top tips to help deal with unhelpful behaviour in children.

It also features the ‘Take5 for Your Emotional Wellbeing’ which focuses on the five most evidenced ways of looking after our mental health i.e. Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give and encourages participants to use Take5 to improve their mental well-being and that of their children.

Places for these programmes are limited to 20 participants so booking is essential. Places cannot be offered to those whose interest is work based, including classroom assistants, nursery workers and childminders.

This is a programme which can help you manage your feelings when you are stressed, worried or depressed and learn simple practical skills to help you cope with life’s challenges.

This is a six-session programme using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) concepts – the most evidenced-based talking therapy for people affected by low mood, anxiety or depression. The programme has been developed by Dr Chris Williams, professor of Psychiatry at University of Glasgow and a recognised expert in developing self-help resources based on CBT. It introduces participants to the ‘Five Areas Approach’ which illustrates that events and situations in our lives affect how we think, how we feel, how we behave and also affect us physically. Thinking and behaviour are the two areas that we have most control over, if we tend to think and/or behave in extreme and unhelpful ways, it can adversely affect the other areas and lead to us getting caught in a ‘vicious circle’. The programme therefore focuses on how we can challenge and change our thinking and behaviour in order to turn the circle into a ‘virtuous circle’. The programme is delivered by experienced facilitators who will ensure that you get the most from the course and start Living Life to the Full.

The number of participants on this course is limited to 16. Please only attend if you receive confirmation of a place before the 15th January 2019.
