St Albans Girls’ School (STAGS) invited parents to meet with mental health professionals to learn about the support services available to young people in Hertfordshire.

The afternoon featured information stalls and workshops from CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services), the OLLIE Foundation, Mind in Mid Herts, Youth Talk and others.

Verity Bramwell, from the OLLIE Foundation, said: “This event is simply amazing.

“It is truly a unique opportunity to bring together these groups so that they can learn from each other and ultimately lots of young people will benefit.”
