Support & Information Sessions for Parents & Carers

Over the next few weeks, there will be two Information and Support Sessions for Parents and Carers who are concerned about their pre-teen or teenager’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health taking place in Edinburgh.

Each session has a different topic focus and there is an opportunity for parents and carers to meet other parents and supportive professionals in a safe relaxed environment. Parents and carers of 11-18 year olds from in and around Edinburgh are welcome to book to attend any of the sessions.

The next Information Session is about Self Harm – This session will hopefully increase parents and carers understanding about Self Harm and offer some practical ways they can help young people who may consider or display self-harming behaviour.  

The session will be facilitated by Lucia Romeou Somma from the Penumbra Edinburgh Self Harm Project. Lucia provides information, advice and support to parents and family members of young people who self-harm and has lived experience of self-harm and recovery.

The session takes place on Tuesday 15th May 2018, 6.30-8.30pm, Southside Community Centre, 117 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9ER (On street parking)
