Wrexham Glyndŵr University and The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities are delighted to present this exciting and innovative conference – our 5th annual event.
The conference will appeal to all working to teach, care for and support young people, especially those with emotional, social and additional learning needs. We know that increasingly practitioners are facing the challenges of supporting the well-being of pupils and managing the impact on the whole child of a range of adverse childhood experiences. Creativity in all its forms plays an integral part in responding to these challenges.
We intend to provide the ideal opportunity to come together with other professionals and practitioners to participate in small groups and debate with speakers and presenters, whilst enjoying a range of networking opportunities. We will have the benefit of active contributions of young people on the day.
Thursday, December 6, 7pm / Friday, December 7, 7pm / Saturday, December 8, 1pm

If you're interested in mental health and want to know more about the topic or would like to find out about our mental health courses, come along to our Mental Health Masterclass.
In the morning, interactive discussions will take you from Hippocratic times right through to the current era to see how our ideas around mental health and illness have developed. You’ll also be thinking about how these ideas influence our views today and asking the question – what is a mental illness? The afternoon will be dedicated to wellbeing. We will look at what mental wellbeing actually means, exploring the Five Ways to Wellbeing, and think creatively about how we can help individuals and communities to boost their resilience and feel good.
