Children and young people across the UK have had their lives turned upside down by the pandemic. Almost every young person has had to adjust to dramatic changes in their education or employment, routine and home life. This webinar will discuss the impact on young people and how we can support them through this crisis. For this panel discussion we are delighted to be joined by Jack Parsons, UK’s Chief Youth Officer, Global Mental Health Ambassador and CEO of The Youth Group and David Beeney, founder of Breaking the Silence, who was recognised in 2018 as one of the top 101 influencers globally on employee engagement. He is also a qualified Mental Health Counsellor affiliated to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Practitioners) and a trustee for Mind.
