Aim for the Day

Engage Youth Workers and Church Leaders to:

(1) Engage: Expanding their awareness of Mental Health issues in young
(2) Empower: How to create supportive environments so young people feel able to seek help.
(3) Equip: Practical strategies to enable young people to get the help they need.

The church is one of the largest youth work providers in the UK and ideally placed to reach and support those young people. This workshop is aimed at volunteer / paid youth workers and church leaders,  but is open to anyone who plays a role in supporting young people.

The day will take a look at:
• What do we mean by mental health and what are the issues young people are facing.
• How adolescent development impacts mental health, wider causes, risk and resilience
• The impact of mental issues on young people.
• The role of youth work in mental health and what does the Bible have to say about
mental health.
• The power of relationship – how to create spaces where young people feel safe to talk
• Tool box for young people. Practical ways to help young people and explore the issues of mental health with young people. How to explore feelings and behaviour, where to go for help, coping skills.
• Know your limits – referral is not weakness - building a simple yet robust pastoral care
system internally and a referral network externally. The art of not passing on to quickly and not passing on to slowly.
• Looking after yourself.
