Courageous Conversations

Courageous Conversations

We are proud to announce a ground-breaking new initiative – at a time when the country is calling for more prevention and interventions for mental health issues in general, and particularly in young people, our “Courageous Conversations” event will be bringing our conference style and expert presenters on mental and emotional health to Milton Abbey School in Dorset. We will be taking over the WHOLE of Milton Abbey School for this cutting edge one-day event which is bringing students, parents and ALL of the Milton Abbey teacher staff together. The event is also open to any other interested parents, professionals and establishments.

Milton Abbey Head Master, Magnus Bashaarat is sensitive to these issues and is dedicating a full day out of the school calendar to talk about mental health well-being. He has worked alongside us to develop this unique event. 

He comments ‘Young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing is seldom out of the news. As parents and educators we are all too aware of the pressures and difficulties facing teenagers who are trying to cope with the relatively new phenomenon of 24/7 social media and the reality of their day to day lives being constantly ‘shared’ and commented upon.  Whilst long term research has yet to be done on the impact of this, the short term impact is there for all to see.’  He adds ‘The hope is that those parents who attend ‘Courageous Conversations’ will leave feeling better informed and prepared to engage with their children on these delicate subjects and better able to prevent problems before they arise.’

Throughout the day there will be a Parents and Staff and a Student's programme. Pupils, parents, teachers and staff will hear from leading expert healthcare professionals and engage in panel discussions, presentations and workshops across a wide range of pertinent topics including: Self-Harm & Eating Disorders; Sex, Love & Relationships; Social media; and Mental health, Depression & Anxiety.

At the end of the day each delegate will receive a full resource pack with information from clinical partners and sponsors.

Professional delegates will receive a CPD certificate of attendance.
