Update from BEAM emotional health and well-being drop-in service

With the restrictions easing, we thought it would be useful to update as to how Shropshire Telford & Wrekin BEAM will be operating.

We do not have any plans to re-open as a drop-in service currently. We will continue to offer telephone call backs as well as virtual face to face appointments. All support should be requested via the BEAM website.

You may be aware we are offering limited face to face appointments from our Wellington venue. These are strictly on an appointment-only basis. As you can imagine, these are in high-demand given the limited slots we have, particularly the after-school appointments. To ensure as many face to face sessions can be offered as possible, we will be booking appointments during school time.

Workshops for parents and carers

We are pleased to let you know we are now offering virtual sessions for parents & carers around common emotional well-being topics. These sessions aim to help parents & carers support their young people at home. The sessions are detailed below, and do not need to be booked. Please share with those you feel may benefit.

Supporting children & young people who show anxious behaviours.

This will cover:

· What anxiety is.

· The science of anxiety.

· How can you support your young person,

· The opportunity for questions and answers with our practitioners at the end.

Date available:

· Wednesday 26 May 2021 at 1.00pm – Microsoft Teams Meeting – Click here to join the meeting

We will be adding a two-part Sleepy Heads workshop in the coming weeks, as well additional dates for the sessions listed above.
