Introduction to Anxiety and Depression

The Anxiety and Depression workshop is suitable for any adults in regular contact with young people experiencing difficulties in this area. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of children and young adults reporting problems such as anxiety and depression and this workshop is based on the latest research to increase your confidence in using evidence-based strategies to use in your setting.
