Bullying & Mental Health Workshop

Over half of our young people in the Cayman Islands report that they have been bullied. Understanding bullying and its link with mental illness can support the children in our community in creating an anti-bullying culture. This workshop helps to understand bullying and explores strategies for preventing it: • How to identify different types of bullying. • Understanding the impact of bullying on children's mental health. • Identifying risk factors that make children vulnerable to bullying. • How to support an anti-bullying culture. • Understanding how bullying and mental health interrelate and contribute to each other.

Young Men at Risk

Suicide rates are higher in men than women. Research indicates that youth suicide and specific social and cultural variable are linked, such as quality of life, social attachment, measures of individualism, and help seeking behaviours. This workshop will explore: • How emotional distress is communicated in young men; • Challenging and risk taking behaviours displayed by young men; • Warning signs to watch for; • Help-seeking.
