Children’s Mental Health

Understanding children’s and young people's mental health (aged 5 – 16 years)

This short course provides a practical introduction to some of the most common mental health issues encountered in children, and explores ways of promoting emotional and psychological well-being. It is suitable for both teachers and support staff who would like a better understanding of these issues and how to support children in the most effective way. All tutors are experienced therapists who have training and experience in working with children.

The course includes support from an expert tutor who will work with you throughout the course. You can contact your tutor at any time if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything that comes up during the course. Online support is available 7 days  week, up to 9pm each evening, allowing you to talk to a member of the support team at a time to suit you. 

I found the course very useful - learning more about the range of challenges that children can encounter during development and how best to support them. It's added a useful new dimension to my work as a mentor. The course also contains useful practical ideas on promoting positive mental health and emotional intelligence, really valuable in school!
