Mental Health Awareness Initiative for Parent/Caregivers of Primary School Children

We are hosting 2 presentations 1 in the Monaghan Education Centre and 1 in the Cavan Crystal Hotel. The date and time for both is Wednesday 5th April 2017 (7 – 8:30pm)

This 1.5hour presentation is aimed at parents/caregivers of children in senior classes in primary school (5th and 6th class). If you are a parent/caregiver of younger aged children you are welcome to attend.

As a result of this presentation, participants will:

  • Gain a better understanding of mental health and the key issues impacting on the mental health of young people
  • Learn to promote positive mental health in children
  • Learn the value of listening as a way of supporting young people
  • Learn about other resources available to parents/caregivers

The presentation will offer practical tips in how best to support and promote the mental health of all children and is not targeted at children with specific mental health issues.
