What are the benefits of accredited training?

Course Overview

It is estimated that 1 in 10 children and young people now experience a mental health conditions with depression, anxiety and conduct disorder being regularly identified. The cause of these challenges is often caused by a reaction to the things which are happening in their lives.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, 70% of children and young people who experience a mental health condition have not had appropriate interventions at an early age.

Good mental health is as important as good physical health and allows children and young people to develop coping mechanisms and resilience to deal with the challenges of growing up, reaching adolescence and adult life.

This training course defines what mental health is from a children and young people’s perspective and identifies the broad spectrum of mental health conditions. This training course considers various models of the continuum of mental health and how experience of children growing up can influence their mental wellbeing, especially as a young person approaches adolescence.

This training course considers the positive and negative factors of social media and mental health, the impact of being in looked after care and challenges with peer pressure, whilst suggesting practical ways to provide support.

This training course identifies ways to recognise indicators of anxiety and depression in children and young people, confirms the theory of ‘holistic positive health’ and recognise the ‘ABC of CBT’ as a tool to use when working with children and young people.

Finally, this training course clarifies the present government strategy in tackling mental health in children and young people and provides resources in signposting children, young people and families to suitable support.
