WHAT IF COVID-19 WAS THE START OF SOME NEW THINKING ABOUT THE WAY FORWARD?
WHAT WOULD YOU NEED TO KNOW?
So...Your Mission... should you choose to accept it... is to bring your caring and concern about the well-being or mental health of one focus child .... or more. You can join the I Matter Challenge and our award scheme and take part in a learning journey that helps you develop insight AND bring about important results in your professional and/or personal roles.
You will explore what important research evidence on children’s mental health and well-being is REALLY saying about how to best help a focus child - so that in 1-6 months time, you will be moving forward with more confidence, new ways of thinking, clear action steps and supportive community that is helping you make the positive difference that matters.
This approach rebuilds the hope and confidence of professionals and parents by providing a language and concepts that we can all work together with that ties elements together. It just makes complete sense
