New Pivotal Education conference on the mental wellbeing of young children

Provision for children’s mental health can and must be improved. Too often children are left to cope on their own, put on a waiting list or flatly refused any help. There are many young children suffering with the most appalling trauma with no support, passed from agency to agency and back to the teacher’s classroom door, adrift in a chaotic process. We cannot allow the most vulnerable to fall through the gaps created by adults.

Pivotal is committed to deepening collaboration between agencies and opening the conversation to a national audience.

The Pivotal Conversations Conference: Children, Mental Health and Behaviour is a not-for-profit event hosted by Bridgend College on July 15 that brings together people from all agencies working with young people at risk : Education, Justice, Youth Work, Social Care, Health Care, Police, Youth Offending. The conference is designed to capture conversations, share ideas and design ‘next practice’. Rather than a string of speakers it brings people together in structured conversations and workshops. Tickets are £50 and available at pivotaleducation.com.

When:
The event takes place at 9.30am-3.30pm, Wednesday 15 July 2015. Tickets are priced at £50 per delegate with lunch and refreshments included.

Where:
Bridgend College
Cowbridge Road
