Liverpool’s first ever education related mental health conference will take place in October at the M&S Bank Arena.
Funded by the Liverpool Learning Partnership, Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group and supported by Liverpool City Council’s Families Programme, Education in Mind will be a one-day conference that will explore various key issues surrounding mental health and emotional wellbeing within a local education context.
Speaking about the conference, Elaine Rees, CEO of The Liverpool Learning Partnership said: “Mental health and emotional wellbeing is a topic high on everyone’s agenda for many reasons, particularly within the education sector.
“We’re inviting headteachers, mental health leads and governing body members within all Liverpool-based education establishments from early years to secondary stages, to come along, learn and share experiences and best practice in relation to staff, pupils and their families.”
Keynote speakers and a guest panel will address mental health and emotional wellbeing issues faced by staff within education settings, whilst a series of informative workshops taking place throughout the day will cover a range of subjects from youth suicide, bereavement, early years and mental health to neurodevelopmental conditions and more.
A marketplace will allow local organisations, including members of the Liverpool Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Partnership, to showcase and explain the services they offer and support available for local professionals and families.
Delegate places are limited to three per setting, so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
The conference takes place on Friday 18 October, 9:15am (8.45am for registration) – 3.30pm at the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool, and headline sponsor will be the Educare Magazine.
