Parent Anxiety Workshop – Information for parents and carers

Dear Parents,

We want to make you aware of a two-session anxiety workshop for parents delivered by NHS colleagues from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).  This workshop is targeted at parents/carers who have children who experience anxiety that they find difficult to manage. All parents and carers are very welcome to join these workshops. The CAMHS team (Kyle & Catherine) will deliver this session with the opportunity for questions from parents throughout and at the end of the workshop (there is no expectation for attendees to ask questions or to turn their cameras on during the session, you can absolutely just join and listen over the 90 minutes).

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