Mental Health Family Hour with Sam Tyrer and Dave Cottrell
Sam Tyrer and Dave Cottrell, creators of The Mental Health Family Hour initiative, will deliver an online webinar on what they have coined as the ‘big three’ mental health issues: depression, anxiety and stress. It will explore how to deal with these issues and also why they arise.
Mental Health Family Hour came out of Change Talks, an educational programme delivered throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria with a key aim of preventing mental health problems. The Change Talks programme has reached over 35,000 11–18-year-olds since the beginning of 2018. Since the coronavirus lockdown, Sam and Dave designed the Mental Health Family Hour to help educate people about taking care of their mental health at home. These weekly webinars have reached over 8,000 people and teach positive coping strategies.
