It is the perfect place to meet with fellow professionals whilst taking the opportunity to chat with exhibitors and discover new resources and ideas.
During the afternoon, the conference will include a Panel Debate on the subject of Feeling Good. Questions will focus on celebrating successes and overcoming challenges in addressing children and young people’s health and emotional wellbeing.

The theme of Feeling Good has been chosen for the Children’s Health Conference 2020 to raise awareness and promote the importance of good emotional health and wellbeing for children and young people. It is aimed at all those involved in the children’s health and wellbeing sectors including: healthcare, education, social services, local authorities, parents, carers and young people. The conference will reflect on current research and theory whilst looking at best practice and the rights of children and young people with regards to emotional health and wellbeing. It will provide the perfect opportunity for delegates to share ideas, listen to examples of good practice and look at resources that can then be taken away and used in the workplace.
