I Matter Relationship Health Introductions
All successful journeys start with noticing new details that have been overlooked
Introduction Sessions offer a background to our work and approach
Introduction sessions can be for professionals, senior leaders, parents-carers, or young people.
They introduce questions about how to improve child and adult wellbeing and will introduce you to the idea of relationship health.
The session is intended to open up some questions and get you interested in wanting to learn more so that you can help make a difference in your work or home roles.
An I Matter Learning Journey is relevant for professionals and for parents and for young people and for senior leaders
Participants have included Headteachers, Teachers, TA, GP's, Paediatricians, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Therapists and Counsellors
We prioritise work with primary care communities and their local schools as our key priority is prevention and early intervention

- Reflections on the current child mental health situation
