Managing Stress and Worry: Workshops for Young People – (CAMHS Midlothian)

Our NHS colleagues from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) are running a two-part workshop for young people, supporting them to manage stress and worry. These sessions focus on helping young people to understand stress and worry and in finding strategies that can help them to manage these feelings.  All secondary school-aged young people are very welcome to join these workshops. The CAMHS team (Kyle, Gemma & Catherine) will deliver these sessions with the opportunity for questions throughout and at the end of the workshop using the Q&A chat function. There is no expectation for attendees to ask questions, they can join and just listen over the hour. Cameras are automatically disabled on Microsoft Teams Live Events so you won’t be on camera during the sessions.

You do not need to register for these workshops, simply join the workshop using the links provided below. Further information can be found on the information sheet attached.

Supporting the wellbeing of neurodivergent C&YP

A new service supporting the wellbeing of neurodivergent C&YP in Edinburgh has been introduced. It is a partnership project between Barnardo’s, Tailor Ed Foundation (5-16) and Number 6 (16-24) and CAMHS. There will be groups and some individual support on developing awareness/understanding, insight, and identity, and looking after wellbeing. This has been funded by the City of Edinburgh Council Community Mental Health Funding

Families who feel they may benefit from the service should be encouraged to self refer:

Barnardo’s are operating a triage service, providing emotional support, practical strategies and signposting to help get C&YP to the right service for them. Young people and/or their parents can simply get in touch by email NDwell@barnardos.org.uk or come along to one of their community drop ins (see website for dates).

5 Steps towards wellbeing

Our wellbeing display can be viewed in the main corridor on the first floor. Take your time and challenge yourself to complete the 5 steps. Explore the QR codes and links on the last board.
