Teenage mental health: what can parents do?

A talk by Janey Downshire, co-author of Teenagers Translated.

Taking place on Thursday 27 September, 7pm at The Old Crown Court in Ipswich, parents are invited to a talk with counsellor and co-author of Teenagers Translated, Janey Downshire.

The event aims to educate parents on how to spot early signs of mental health and provide fundamental tools to encourage positive transformation in adolescents. It will also cover effective tips for creating a healthy relationship with modern technology, and with parents too.   

Allan Myatt, CEO of Ormiston Families, says: “ I am delighted that our charity is working with Janey Downshire to support local parents who are facing challenges with their teenagers. This comes at a time when almost 400,000 children and young people aged 18 and under are in contact with the health service for mental health problems.

As a charity we want to provide children and young people with the strength to overcome mental health problems and provide the strategies, resilience and confidence to help them do so.”

The event is raising funds for Ormiston Families’ Mpower Ipswich service, which helps local women address issues that lead to the removal of their children into care, often due to mental health problems, debt and homelessness.
