Spectrum are hosting the World’s Largest International Mental Health Lesson on World Mental Health Day.
Spectrum is a Berkshire wide community led group founded by Shamyla and made up of a core team of Reading University students driven to connect the world on World Mental Health Day and raise awareness of common mental health conditions, break stigma and educate students from Year 6 to Year 11 on mental health. This is increasingly important because of the rise of young people suffering with mental/emotional distress with more students resulting in self-harm type behaviours as a means to cope. We are doing this in partnership with Brighter Berkshire; a community led mental health campaign. Spectrum is being supported by Bracknell Forest Public Health, Reading FC, Senior NHS clinicians and other organisations. This event is open to schools across Berkshire.
The lesson will focus on depression, anxiety, resilience, self-harm, eating disorders, male mental health and suicide. With a focus on; top tips for mental wellbeing, coping strategies to manage stress and adversities, self-help and how to support someone with mental/emotional distress.read more

Laying the Foundations for Family Emotional Health and Wellbeing
Come to this insightful conference day followed by workshops focusing on how we can all work together to improve emotional wellbeing for every family from the beginnings of pregnancy.
We aim to raise the awareness of professionals working with parents and parents themselves of the importance of foetal development in the 9 months of pregnancy and infant development in the first few years of life. We want to promote family friendly policies and practice around pregnancy, birth and first two years of life for the wellbeing of all. The conference is open to everyone interested in parenting as well as foetal and infant development.
Join us to discuss mental wellbeing in primary schools. Emotional health and wellbeing of children is of such high importance and therefore so are the root causes for mental health issues, spotting signs early and early service provision.
We want to know what each area in Berkshire is doing, commend and share some of the great things happening and examine what we can improve together.
We will look at examples that have good evidence of success, programmes that includes the whole system for the child (including teacher and parental engagement for example), and initiatives that are sustainable; to help really make a long term impact.read more
