Stem4 is a charity aimed at improving the early identification of commonly occurring mental health issues in teenagers, covering eating disorders, depression and anxiety, self-harm and addiction. Stem4 educates through interactive workshops for schools, conferences for school leaders, school nurses and students, and through a comprehensive website - - that provides evidence based information.

Dr Rob Hicks, Georgina Campbell, Dr Nihara Krause and Dr Faraz Mughal at the first stem4 conference for GP’s - ‘Children and Young People’s Mental Health for GP’s - A focus on prevention, early identification and intervention in eating disorders, depression and self-harm’ which was held last week and was a great success.

One of the delegates said: “I spent today at an event for GPs organised by stem4 a charity supporting young persons with emotional and mental health needs. The amount of information given to us by the speakers was staggering and I await the slide decks of their presentations in order to fully appreciate their contributions on for example self-harm, eating disorders and GP interventions. Specifically they have produced an app freely available to patients at risk of self-harm.“

Dr Nihara Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Founder of stem4 said: “we at stem4 are delighted with the feedback from our half day conference which aimed to provide GPs with the latest information on aetiology, advances in Evidence Based Practice, and a forum for discussion on how eating disorders, depression and self-harm can be managed most effectively in primary care. Each topic was presented by experts in the field together with a facilitated discussion on best practice. There was also a panel discussion with representation from the RCGP.”
