About The Centre for Child Mental Health

The Centre for Child Mental Health aims to support both child professionals and parents with the latest evidence based tools, techniques, brain science and psychological research on how to enable children and teenagers to thrive. To achieve this aim, the Centre has been offering international conferences, training events and resources to professionals and parents for over 15 years.

At the Centre for Child Mental Health we have experts in all aspects of mental health to support your CPD and training needs. We understand the challenging task of enabling troubled children and young people to thrive. Our experts are available to you through conferences, approved trainings or bespoke presentations at a venue of your choice. We entirely understand that it can seem like an uphill struggle when you are repeatedly met with a child’s real suffering, mental health problem or defensiveness, anger and deep mistrust. Our aim is to support you with vital skills, underpinned by the latest research from psychology and brain science. We look forward very much to your participation in events and, as ever, we welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
