Led by Tom Tate (www.whymind.ie) the Workshop was a timely discussion around the mental health needs of children – How do we ensure we create a caring, safe and welcoming environment in our ministries for children who may suffer from issues around their mental health while at the same time, understand the responsibility we hold as caregivers in our ministries relating to these issues, and identifying the time to pass on concerns we may have?
