The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) is pleased to announce the launch of their seminar series for 2018:
“Should mental health service seek to cure mental ill health? If not, what are they there for?”
Join them to discuss what the research can tell us about whether children and young people are being helped by mental health services. Contribute to the debate about how we respond to the data, how we define and measure a positive outcome, and how we communicate about the scope and focus of treatment.
Open to mental health and education professionals, service leads, commissioners and anyone interested in the future of children and young people’s mental health services.
Date: 25th April 2018
Venue: Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, First floor, Jordan House, 47 Brunswick Place, London N1 6EB

The Act F.A.S.T. campaign has been run a number of times as it is a simple and straight forward message to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke. Acting FAST as soon as you see any single sign of a stroke not only save lives but potentially limit any long-term effects. The faster you act the better their chances.
Resources currently available to order from the PHE Campaign Resource Centre (CRC) are as follows and more resources will be added as they become available:
The Mental Health Foundation has released findings from a YouGov survey about the impact of world events on children. This follows its publication of a guide to help parents talk to their children about worrying events.
This survey of parents, with children aged 5 to 18, has revealed that 41% of parents think their children are anxious about the threat of terrorism.
Almost a quarter of parents (23%) indicated their children were anxious about the threat of nuclear war. A third of parents (33%) thought their children were anxious about Donald Trump’s presidency. A third of parents (32%) also thought their children were anxious about global warming and climate change.
In terms of signs parents are noticing, of those whose children were anxious, 6 in 10 (61%) have noticed their children starting to ask a lot more questions, a quarter (24%) had noticed their children seeking reassurance, and 13% reported that their children have gone as far as asking to avoid activities such using public transport or going to busy public places. A further 8% reported their children having nightmares.
It found that overall almost 4 in 10 parents (39%) were concerned that their children are becoming more anxious about world and national events.
