Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Children & Young People Mental Health Support

Who else can help me?


There is a range of support available to help parents and carers when they are worried about their child. If you are worried about a child then encouraging them to talk about their feelings and watching them play can be helpful. 

Parenting Programmes - Parents and carers may sometimes want or need some extra help to deal with parenting issues. A range of parenting programmes are available aimed at dealing with different issues. For more information visit the Cambridgeshire County Council website.

Huddl provides a platform for parents and carers to access up-to-date professional advice so that we can help our children with the pressures of growing up.

Talks are all held at  the Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre on Hills Road

Family Wellbeing & Nutrition
Tuesday 25th September
7pm – 9.50pm, £17.50 per ticket
At this Huddl Parent Talk you will gain tools from the PERMA+ model
for wellbeing and learn about the latest neuroscience findings and why
these matter for us as parents. You will be given a deeper
understanding of how nutrition impacts our children’s minds and
bodies, some easy ideas for health and wellbeing will be provided, as
well as great tips to nourish young brains. There is so much we can
learn from these two professionals on this very current topic.

Friendship Groups & Bullying

Tuesday 30th October
7pm – 9.50pm, £17.50 per ticket
With 1 million young people affected by bullying every week (Young
Minds) it is a common experience, whether being bullied or bullying
someone else. It takes many forms and can have a lasting impact on
the emotional wellbeing of those involved. As parents or carers how
can we best help our children over hurdles such as peer pressure, the
need to fit in, fall outs with friends? At this Huddl Parent Talk we will
learn what the latest evidence suggests and gain practical tools from
our Huddl professionals.
Speakers: Dr Rosemary Taylor & Dr Ruth MacConville

Social Media & Internet Safety
Monday 12th November
7pm – 9.50pm, £17.50 per ticket
How do we manage the best balance? How do we ensure our children
and young people can safely operate and have the strength to talk
when they are in distress? A recent study by ChildLine showed that the
internet had an ever-growing influence on young people’s lives. Many
said constant comparisons to others on social media made them feel
inferior, ugly and unpopular. Join this Huddl event to learn more to
help your children and young people navigate the internet and social
media in a positive way.
Speakers: Jonathan Taylor & Caroline Hurst - Director of Education
from Childnet International
£17.50 to join 1 Huddl Parent Talk or £42.50 to join all 3.
