Join us for our free mental health 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.
