Over the last year, our clinical staff have been sharing their experiences and top tips about how using a Body, Mind, and Context approach enhances their work with children and families.

By asking the right questions and identifying additional factors that contribute towards ill-health, our staff have been able to provide integrated care so that families are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need in order to improve their health and wellbeing.

We encourage other children and young people’s professionals to read the blogs below. You may find a few helpful tips.
