Mental Health Promotion Worker
I have been working with children and young people for the past 11 years. My current targeted qualifications for working with children and young people are a Level 3 NVQ qualification in Children and Young People and a certificate in Effective Practice in Youth Justice and I am a trained Youth Worker.
Within my current role with Merseyside Youth Association (MYA) as a mental health promotion worker, I delivered sessions to groups of young people in secondary schools and colleges, promoting positive mental health and delivering key mental health messages, with a focus on Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE), Trauma Informed Care (TIC), eating disorders and body image and tools to help with those of us who self-harm.
I have a passion for working with children and young people and supporting them where I can.
