Deaf mental health conference 2019

This conference will promote emotional wellbeing for deaf children and young people.

Our summer 2019 conference takes place on Tuesday 2 July 2019 at the Amba Hotel, Marble Arch, London.

It will focus on the emotional health and wellbeing of deaf children and young people. We will deliver a variety of workshops suitable for a range of professionals working with deaf children and young people from early years up to post-16. Like last year, deaf young people will play a central role in the conference, enabling you to hear from them directly.

The conference will bring together leaders and practitioners to share and discuss the challenges for deaf children and young people regarding emotional health and wellbeing, and the latest techniques professionals can use to support them. You’ll leave with an improved understanding of the support that is needed from early years up to post 16 settings. The programme is organised around a cluster of themes, and aims to present a range of approaches and best-practice examples. Speakers will hold discussions on policy landscape, specialist support that’s available, resilience and research.

Our conference aims to stimulate discussion between like-minded professionals to promote sharing of insight about the support that deaf children and young people need and what is available.
