Thank you for all the high schools that have signed up to attend the mental health youth conference this week to celebrate children's mental health week. We are looking forward to welcoming Jamie from 'Drag Queen at 16' television series as the key note speaker and hearing from our own students about how we can look after our mental health.
Five high schools are yet to RSVP so we still have seats remaining if your school would like to bring along more staff, the event will be particularly useful for mental health leads, pastoral support workers, safeguarding leads and headteachers to attend.
Schools will have the opportunity to find out about the new children's wellbeing practitioners that will be supporting selected high schools in the borough and talk to a range of local mental health services involved in the day.
Ealing's health improvement team, Ealing music service and the Clinical Commisioning Group are hosting a conference for high school pupils and young people to talk about mental health.
The event will be attended by a range of local mental health services and organisations that support children's wellbeing and include interactive workshops to raise awareness of mental health and challenge the stigma that prevents many young people from asking for help.
To celebrate wellbeing, Ealing's Got Talent (EGT) will host a competition for young people under the theme of mental health, with celebrity judges and fantastic prizes. Following the huge success of last year's competition, additional places will be available for friends of the finalists to attend and give their support at the live final with live audience voting.

Up to five children per school can access a place to the conference, with priority given to schools who are involved in developing mental health ambassadors to raise pupil voice and spread the word across the school community. Book your places today.
