An international conference on mental health issues among young people will be staged by a Meldreth father who lost his son to suicide next Friday.
Speakers at The MindEd Trust conference will include Minister of State for Care and Support Alistair Burt, South Cambs MP Heidi Allen, mental health campaigner, writer and film producer Jonny Benjamin and head of wellbeing at Hills Road Sixth Form College Andrew Flint.
The focus of this event, organised by Steve Mallen, father of Edward who ended his own life last year, will be the prevention of psychological trauma and disorder in young people through wellbeing and emotional resilience programmes in the education system.
Associated themes will include early intervention, care pathways and suicide prevention.
Attendance at the event is full but conference papers will be made widely and freely available following the event.
