Managing the challenges of the long break

5th June 2025 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Venue: Zoom (online) – seminar


Practitioners with a mental health lead role, pastoral role or medical role, working directly with young people 

Course outline

This interactive two-hour session will address the reality that, for some young people, the prospect of the long break from school or college is not an exciting one. It can be a daunting and stressful prospect to varying degrees and for a multitude of reasons. This session will consider and suggest interventions and support mechanisms around empowering children and young people to cope with their concerns and take ownership of their mental health throughout the summer when their ‘normal’ routine of school and access to more adults and support is disrupted. 

Training topics will include:

  • Identifying young people with concerns related to a long break from school. 
  • Supporting young people in developing ways to reduce anxiety. 
  • Developing strategies to enable young people to approach unstructured time. 
  • Enabling young people to seek help when they are away from the school environment. 

Learning outcomes:

  • To understand what causes young people concern when faced with time away from school. 
  • To feel confident in advising young people on developing strategies. 
  • To be able to signpost young people towards help should they need it.
