Opening the 2019 Liverpool NOW Young People’s Arts Festival, which this year will focus on the theme of children and young people rising up from adversity, on the 5th February we will be holding a Liverpool Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Strategy Conference ‘An ACE Call to Action’ at the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool.
Children and young people will deliver a range of performances focusing on childhood trauma, looking at the impact these experiences have on their lives leading into adulthood. Listen to national figurehead speakers, including Kathryn Pugh MBE Deputy Head of Mental Health, Children and Young People’s Mental Health Programme Lead Mental Health Team and hear the results from the recent city-wide survey understanding the current perception of ACEs, services/support available and what’s needed.
There will be opportunities to take part in debates and discussions and hear the young people’s views in relation to their performances.
This high-level strategic evening will look at embedding ACE and trauma-informed practice in the city, whilst exploring what we are doing as a city to address this public health threat.
