This event is for Greater Manchester only.

The event will provide details about how the Enjoy Your Baby resources both digital or in person course could benefit individuals and communities. The digital self-help course and mini modules are available to Greater Manchester residents and workers and uniquely the website has e-books translated into at least 15 community languages spoken in Greater Manchester. These are accessible now www.gmlifeskills.com
Some families will prefer in person classes in groups and so we will tell you more about opportunities to signpost to and access this offer.
Finally, this event is a starting point for experienced trainers interested in finding out more about becoming a community trainer to deliver Enjoy Your Baby in person classes to new parents in the communities/services in which you work.
We are delighted that we will be joined by our guest speaker Professor Chris Williams who is Emeritus Professor of Psychosocial Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow and a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
