Young People and Mental Health:Training for People Working in the Creative Industries

 

Monday, February 9, 2015  and Monday, March 16, 2015

42nd Street is a Manchester based charity, nationally recognised for its work with young people experiencing mental health issues.

We are offering a two day training course aimed at people working in the Creative Industries who would benefit from a greater awareness and understanding of the mental health issues facing young people and how to most effectively support them. This opportunity is free of charge for people working in the Creative Industries. We are particularly keen to offer places to work in the Heritage Sector.

Day 1 is an introduction to these issues and suitable for group workers, artists, front of house staff and any professionals who come into contact with young people on a regular basis.

Day 2 takes a deeper look at young people and mental health and is particularly suitable for facilitators, artists and those professionals who work with young people in group contexts.

We encourage you to attend both days (you will need to book each day separately) although attendance at only 1 day is also possible.
