Healthy Minds

Photo: It is important to know how mental health affects deaf children and young people

Are you a professional who works with deaf children and young people? Do you want creative ideas to help you support their emotional health and well-being?

Our one-day interactive training day will help you learn how to deliver sessions to help deaf children and young people find their own solutions to problems they may encounter.

Tackling issues such as low self-esteem, isolation, stress and anxiety, our Healthy Minds programme encourages deaf children and young people to use positive strategies for dealing with change, managing their deafness, developing their confidence and building social skills.

You'll learn how to effectively use the Healthy Minds resource and have opportunities to try these techniques and methods throughout the day, sharing further knowledge and ideas with other like-minded professionals.  By the end, you’ll leave the training feeling inspired and confident to encourage deaf children and young people to explore ideas and create strategies to prevent low self-esteem and poor mental health.

Key themes

  • Understanding the Healthy Minds programme and why it is important
  • Ways to develop good emotional vocabulary
  • Identifying support mechanisms and networks
  • Understanding identity
  • Owning and managing deafness
