Introduction to Mental Health Workshop

The Introduction to Mental Health workshop is our foundation module, suitable for all adults. This workshop will help those who work with children to understand how mental health conditions can develop, how these difficulties can present and the impact this can have on learning. Delegates will leave with practical strategies to use in their setting.

 

Course summary

 

Delivered by clinical professionals, this two hour workshop provides delegates with an overview of mental health theory. It acts as a baseline to which further training can be added from our enhanced training portfolio of courses. We strongly believe that all staff should be given access to this basic training and not just those that have a lead role in the setting. The workshop will provide practical tools for adults to increase their understanding of the experiences of the children in their care and consider a range of strategies for managing areas of concern. Delegates will leave feeling better equipped and more confident to offer solutions and identify those that need support.

 

Learning Outcomes

 

  • To understand how young people can develop a mental health condition and how these difficulties can present

Added benefits

 

To give more people the opportunity to develop their understanding, we have teamed up with The Skill Network to offer all schools that purchase our Whole Staff programmes the opportunity to access additional Level 2 Distance Learning courses in a variety of related topics. Not only can school staff benefit from the accredited programmes, but parents can also access them – free of charge.
