Children’s Mental Health - Free Online Support

Would you like a better understanding of children’s mental health? And how to support your child’s mental wellbeing? Do you think your son or daughter needs support with their mental health but are unsure what you can do to help? Or are you a teacher who would like an understanding of the signs that can mean a young student needs mental health support?

Join Dyslexia Sparks’ free online group for parents and carers – Thursday 11th February, 10am to 11am – for a special focus on children’s mental health.
