Following on from the success of our first parent conference held in March, stem4 ran another parent conference on teenage mental health at Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School in Wandsworth on Monday 3rd July 2017.
Speakers included Dr Nihara Krause (Consultant Clinical Psychologist), stem4 ambassadors Rosie Day and Iain Maitland, parent Miriam George and Joe Stone (social worker and CAMHS worker).
Feedback we received from the event was excellent, with 100% of parents reporting they would recommend the conference, 95% of parents reporting that the conference helped increase their awareness of the early signs of mental health issues and 95% saying that the conference helped them to know what early steps to take to deal positively with mental health problems. Feedback comments included:
‘This was incredibly informative and helpful. It’s given me tools to talk to my teenagers and to know what to look out for’.
‘Very good balance of facts, practical information and personal experience which made it seem very real. Would recommend to others’.
