We want to ensure that the valuable information included in our fortnightly newsletter reaches the people who need it most and so, this autumn, we are asking all of our Locality Planning Group members to make a conscious effort to forward share ‘FYI’ with parents, carers and young people with whom they work, live or know.

Please e-mail, post on Facebook, tweet, print out and even just tell people about ‘FYI’ and point anyone interested in being added to the ‘FYI’ circulation list in our direction.

Thanks, in advance, for your support.

As we enter the start of a new school year some challenges still remain for families in an ever-changing environment. Two of the key priorities for our Locality Planning Action Plans are Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Heath for Children & Young People and Supporting Parents & Caregivers.  With this in mind, can we draw your attention to some very relevant opportunities for parents on pages 3-5 which have been organised through the CAWT MACE programme.  Places are limited so please hurry to register!

We also have other opportunities, events and activities in this edition of ‘FYI’ and please forward this onto any relevant contacts you may have – whether colleagues or families with whom you work.

Southern Area LPG FYI – 19th August 2021

Welcome to the 65th edition of our information bulletin, FYI (For Your Information).

FYI Issue 65 19 August 2021

We are delighted to include a new resource for young people for emotional wellbeing and mental health.  Over the last few months, members of the Emotional Wellbeing Network in the Southern Area have worked in co-production with young people to produce the Youth Wellness Web, an online resource for young people across Northern Ireland to access information and tips on maintaining good emotional wellbeing. All the details are on the slide 3 of the newsletter, so please share this valuable resource with young people, parents and anyone working with young people.

We also have the usual wide range of opportunities, activities and resources to keep everyone occupied!

Keep well and keep connected!!
