Join us for our free webinars
We run live webinars for anyone who looks after children and young people - parents, carers, educators - as well as young people themselves and anyone interested in psychology or mental health.
All of our webinars are presented by our mental health trainers, speakers and guest speakers who come from a wide range of professions, including education, psychology, social work, youth work, public health, psychotherapy and nursing. Past topics have included: the teen brain, sleep, supporting a highly sensitive child, and perfectionism.
The webinars explore practical, evidence-based strategies for maintaining positive mental health, whether that's paying attention to our own wellbeing, or how to support those around us.
If you have any questions about our webinars, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that not all NHS systems accept emails from us, due to NHS internal security settings. If you work for the NHS, to ensure that receive confirmation and joining instructions, you may need to register with a non-NHS email address and join using a non-NHS device.
Supporting young people: The teen brain... what's going on?
We know that, other than during the first three years of life, the brain goes through the biggest change in its development during adolescence. This is a critical time in teens’ lives and we have a crucial role to play in helping to guide and develop them to grow into happy and successful adults. This webinar is perfect for parents, carers, educators and anyone looking after a young person.
The session covers the main changes in the brain during the teenage years relating to:
- Risky behaviour
- The social brain
- The role of parents/carers and other adults
Wednesday 27 September, 6:00 - 7:30pm

Barriers to speaking out
Gemma Howard and Alice Palmer
This session is perfect for teachers, parents and carers of young people.
Young people often face barriers when it comes to seeking help for their mental health. Join us to understand these issues and the ways in which we can prevent and overcome these barriers.
We will explore
- The importance of seeking help for our mental health
- The barriers that young people face when it comes to seeking help for their mental health
- How we can prevent and/or overcome these barriers

This session is based on the research conducted by the CoRAY project, and it uses ideas and resources they have created for young people and their families to help reduce or overcome barriers to seeking help.
