Wellbeing Advice on Offer at Family Hub
A range of wellbeing demonstrations are on offer next week to mark Children's Mental Health Week.
Yoga, holistic arts therapy and crafts will be among the activities offered at Horsley Hill Family Hub which is working in partnership with Seaview Primary School and Bamburgh School to deliver the sessions.
A number of wellness providers will be at the Hub between 3.30pm and 5pm on Wednesday 7 February. Young people, parents and carers are encouraged to drop in to find out more about the services available to support children and parents/carers' mental health.
The theme of this year's Children's Mental Health Week is Your Voice Matters.
Councillor Adam Ellison, Lead Member for Children and Families' Social Care, said: "We want all our young people to feel empowered to express themselves and feel that they are being heard.
"It is only by working together that we can create positive change and improve the mental health and wellbeing of our young people.
"There are a number of services that can help so I would encourage everyone to come along to the event and find out more."
