Additionally, it’s a great way to get people talking and to break down the stigma that often surrounds the topics of mental health and emotional well-being.
When it comes to mental health difficulties, parents often have a lot of questions. They’re in a great position to spot early warning signs but often don’t know what they’re looking for or who they should talk to about their concerns.
Parent workshops can be run alongside parent evenings, or as standalone events. They usually last between 45 minutes and two hours but this is entirely flexible.
Parent workshops can work especially well alongside staff training and/or student workshops as this enables parents to continue, at home, the work you hope to put into practice at school.
