    Compared to other young people, care experienced children and young people (CECYP) are five times more likely to have a mental health disorder, like anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or behaviour problems. Early experiences of deprivation, family breakdown and childhood trauma, which often precede entry into care, may have impacted on their health and wellbeing. In addition, changes in care placements may affect not only relationships with family and friends, but also wider relationships, such as those in the child or young person's school.

    It is also important to acknowledge that CECYP may face inequalities in terms of education, employment, and housing which can negatively impact their health and wellbeing.

    Failing to address the mental health and emotional wellbeing needs of CECYP has been linked to a range of poor outcomes that experienced across their lives.

    This is a free four hour workshop for kinship carers in Scotland.


    To gain better knowledge and understanding of the challenges, behaviours and difficulties faced by CECYP in relation to their mental health and emotional wellbeing.


    1. To improve your confidence and understanding of challenges, behaviours and difficulties faced by CECYP in relation to their mental health and emotional wellbeing
    2. To provide strategies and coping mechanisms that will enable you to cope better with the mental health and emotional wellbeing of CECYP
    3. To provide information and resources that will enable you to support children and young people in your care and help them access appropriate services when they may need them
