Your Mission or Challenge.... should you choose to accept it.... is to spend the next week thinking about some important issues and reflecting with others about your own key role in relation to one or more children - maybe a child who is struggling - so that you can build your confidence and understanding of what key steps are needed from you to make a difference to their mental health and well-being -- and your own.

"The information drawn together in I Matter Training is like gold dust for teachers and parents and carers of the child who is challenging.  I am loving the training and finding it so interesting!" - Foster Carer
