WEBINAR: An Introduction to Children and Young People's Mental Health
Date & Time:
Mental Health Training Overview:
This training is underpinned by Future in Mind (2015) a document that promotes that positive mental health is everybody’s responsibility. In line with this government strategy, ‘An Introduction to Children and Young People’s Mental Health’ training has been designed to support frontline staff to promote their part in our national culture shift which embraces social and emotional wellbeing and responds early to signs of mental health problems.
It takes a non-clinical approach that explores how frontline staff can empower individuals to have responsibility for the wellbeing of everyone around them, looking at strategies which increase the emotional literacy and resilience of children and young people. In response to early signs of mental health problems, it considers tools which can be used with children and young people and an increased awareness of other services available.
In addition we aim for professionals to have the opportunity to engage in thinking about how their own mental health needs are met and how this could impact upon the children and young people they work with. Through interactive exercises in the training session participants reflect on their own mental health and consider any concerns they may have within their own setting.
The training is from 10am to 4pm, with an hour lunch break at 12.30 and additional breaks throughout the session.
A Zoom link will be sent by email to those who have registered a few days before the event.
