The popular 'Let's Talk Teenagers' support sessions are back

A new course of the highly popular 'Let’s Talk Teenagers' sessions start this Autumn.

Let's Talk Teenagers is a series of online support sessions and an opportunity for parents and carers of teenagers to hear about the challenges young people are facing today and discover ways to help them navigate their way through them.

The sessions have been running throughout 2022 and discuss the tools and techniques that can be used to support young people and their community. The latest sessions, starting on Tuesday 13 September and running weekly until 4 October, with an added session on Wednesday 5 October, cover topics such as exploring teenage relationships, mental health and emotional wellbeing, anger and challenging behaviour, bullying and online challenges including preventing radicalisation.

There will be an updated toolkit available after the courses for everyone who signs up to this free event, which also covers topics from earlier sessions, such as drugs and alcohol, body image, self-care and social and emotional changes.

The project has been produced with funding and support from the South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership, Teignbridge and South Hams District Councils, Teignbridge Council for Voluntary Service, the Safety and Resilience Consultancy, Devon County Council, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Safer Devon Partnership.
