Satveer has been a part of numerous campaigns and educational tools over the years. Here are some of the projects she is or has been a part of:
Joint Training Shropshire Council
Satveer is currently being commissioned to deliver CPD training sessions for professionals from both adult and young people’s services on the topic of self-harm.
Police Hostage Negotiators Course
Satveer has an input delivering self-harm awareness on the National Police Hostage Negotiators Course Training in Kent.
Satveer has been delivering training to residential care staff supporting vulnerable young people at Hexagon Care for a number of years now. This is a rolling programme for staff to attend at the beginning of their employment and then as a refresher course.
Satveer delivered a very well attended online session on the topic of self-harm awareness for the Teen Tips Community. Teen Tips believe in early intervention. By providing those looking after children and young people with access to up-to-date professional advice and practical tools, they are more equipped to deal with the pressures of growing up. Teen Tips draw on the latest research from psychotherapy, psychology, and neuroscience, along with Teen Tips Founder, Alicia Drummond’s experience of working as an adolescent therapist and being a mum.
Our training and resources are delivered via our webinars and talks and The Wellbeing Hub, a live and interactive web app which provides expert support for the whole school community to access 24/7.
We are passionate about helping schools, parents and carers deepen their understanding of childhood and adolescence in order to create environments which promote emotional wellbeing in young people. Click here for more information on The Wellbeing Hub for schools.
The Grace Dear Trust
Satveer has been funded to deliver sessions for students, staff and parents in schools in the South West of England on behalf of The Grace Dear Trust. The Grace Dear Trust say “we want to fund counsellors to visit schools, giving young people the help they need promptly and in an environment that isn’t intimidating. We also want to create a local network of professionals that young adults can reach out to.”
The Grace Dear Trust was set up in memory of Grace Dear who died by suicide aged 27 years. They want to raise awareness amongst school children, giving support to those who need it and preventing others from suffering so long in silence. This is done by funding seminars in schools, where guest speakers help young people understand the importance of mental well‐being.
