Managing anxiety in your family
Anxiety is more than just being worried – it’s a mental health issue that can affect your wellbeing and quality of life. Both adults and children can suffer from anxiety, and other people’s anxiety can also affect us.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to manage anxiety in your family. For example, we’ll explain how to:
- recognise anxiety
- trust your emotions
- use skills like mindfulness.
In the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and hear other parents’ experiences and ideas.
If you have a child aged 0-16 years this webinar is suitable for you.
If you register for the webinar, we’ll send you a link to the recording, even if you can’t make it on the night.
