PLEASE NOTE OUR CONFERENCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 2021
Do you work in the children’s health and wellbeing sector?
Then put the date in your diary and BOOK NOW for the Children’s Health Scotland Conference 2021 | Feeling Good which is all about sharing ideas, experiences and good practice in relation to children’s health and wellbeing.
Our theme of Feeling Good has been chosen to raise awareness and promote the importance of good emotional health and wellbeing for children 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 you can then take away to use in your workplace.
The Children’s Health Conference 2021 | Feeling Good is taking place on Friday 3 September 2021 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, Edinburgh.
The morning session of the conference will include a Keynote Speech by Maree Todd MSP, Minister for Children and Young People and a Guest Presentation by Dr William Bird MBE about Feeling Good in relation to children and young people’s health and wellbeing. It will also include a range of morning workshops which have been designed to share ideas of what is working in practice whilst encouraging a deeper understanding of what it takes to feel good.
In the afternoon the conference will include further workshops, followed by a panel discussion on celebrating successes and overcoming challenges in addressing children and young people’s health and emotional wellbeing. It will conclude with the presentation of the Scottish Children’s Health Awards.
Delegates attending this conference will have a better understanding of:
- The successes and challenges in relation to the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people.
- How Scottish Government policy is supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland.
- How health-related play can help children physically, mentally and emotionally.
- How every child and young person has the right to the best quality healthcare.
The Market Place is the networking hub at the conference with a range of exhibitors ready to meet you. We encourage delegates to visit the Market Place and meet with fellow professionals whilst taking the opportunity to chat with exhibitors and discover new resources and ideas.
