After working with families Jo Bentley, mindfulness teacher and trainer, was invited to train to deliver the .B model of mindfulness in schools and over the last 6 years has both taught and trained others in these models.Jo works with teenagers in a variety of settings, in and out of school and has worked in the state and private sector. She has also sat on an advisory panel for The Royal College of Psychiatrists on improving access to mental health services to young people and has worked with CAMHS on improving support and information for parents/carers who are responsible for young people with mental health issues. 

Jo joined us at our Manchester event to discuss 'Mindfulness for teens, why it matters, tips and techniques'. During this session she talked about teaching teenagers mindfulness, in and out of school settings, why teenagers need these techniques more than ever, and demonstrated some simple techniques which can use to support teenagers.
