June 15th / A reminder that this week Vista St Albans are running a workshop for parents entitled Understanding Self Harm.  In recent months there has been much media coverage of an apparent rise in the number of children suffering from conditions such as anxiety, stress and depression.  Alarmingly, the latest estimate from the NHS suggests that the proportion of children and young adults who self-harm at some point is somewhere between 1 in 12 and 1 in 15.  If you would like to gain a better understanding of this situation, please come along:
