SEMH Conference: Self Injury & Risky Behaviours
|The Health & Wellbeing Service, in partnership with Northpoint Wellbeing and NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups Partnership, are delighted to offer delegates from our Leeds settings the opportunity to attend the second of three Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) conferences over the academic year.
Self-injury is a very common behaviour in young people. Around one in 12 people self-harm, with 10% of 15-16 year olds self-harming. However, self-harm is often portrayed simply as cutting, rather than an umbrella of self-injurious and risky behaviours which can be more difficult to identify. These include disordered eating, harmful sexual behaviour, substance abuse and more.
|The conference is open to Schools, Children's Centres and SILCs and offers a selection of workshops designed to give delegates practical advice and information as well as an engaging keynote speech. Spaces are limited on certain workshops, it is advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
|This conference will bring together a range of staff working with children and young people to share best practise, improve understanding and debunk myths around self-injury and risky behaviours, to instigate positive changes and work together to help the children and young people in our city. As these behaviours are increasingly being identified in primary schools, we encourage both primary & secondary settings to attend.
The aim of the conference is to provide relevant and up to date information, advice and training on key SEMH themes in our city and how delegates can take away the knowledge and skills they will learn and apply them to their everyday practice.
|Delegates are requested to select their workshops at time of booking, please ensure each delegate books on two workshops over the day. Please note the conference costs the subsidised rate of £20 per delegate for Leeds MindMate Registered settings only (Leeds schools & children's centres can register for free here www.mindmatechampions.org.uk/register) with a cancellation fee of £50 in the event of non attendance. Schools and settings external to Leeds are able to attend at the full delegate cost of £240.
|The conference is relevant to any professional working in a leadership or support capacity within schools, colleges and settings, particularly MindMate links.
