Parent Workshop on Mental Health

26th April 2017





As part of a whole school approach to continue to support positive mental health,

we are hosting an event for parents on:


Thursday 4th May at 7 pm in the Study Hall.


Cherith Edgar from ‘MensSana’ (the Action Mental Health organisation) will present a workshop to help parents support their children with stress and coping, entitled ‘ Managing Your Inner Critic’.

This should last approximately 60 minutes.


There will also be an opportunity to meet representatives from other organisations such as:

CAUSE, Praxis Care, Lighthouse and Parenting NI.


These groups support all ages in promoting mental health and wellbeing.


Cherith presented a workshop for parents last year on ‘Provoking Thought’

to raise mental health awareness.

This was well attended by many parents who found the session very useful and

commented on the excellent content and presentation.
