Mental Health, Emotional Wellbeing & Trauma-informed Practice

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on us all. Now, more than ever, we need to ensure that children, young people, families, professionals, and volunteers are supported in their emotional well-being and mental health. One of the ways we can do this is by developing new, and building on existing, relationships. To highlight the importance of every interaction, Dr Karen Treisman explains the importance in recognising how every small moment can help - or hinder.
