'Stressed Out Brain' Training

Stressed Out Brain is a full day training built around a new and engaging animation and resource workbook to support professionals and volunteers working with young people. The training will help partner agencies understand how the teenage brain develops, how stress can impact this and the coping strategies young people develop to cope including serious youth violence and mental health issues. With this knowledge, participants will be walked through a series of tailor made interventions and resources designed to explore topics such as sleep, anxiety, types of stress, healthy relationships, knife violence and cannabis use. These resources can then be taken back to their agencies and communities, to share the tools and interventions as a starting point for working with young people and signpost them to Early Break if they need more specialist support and interventions.
