Child Mental Health

Child Mental Health affects around one in ten children and young people, rising to one in five in young adults. Yet only 25% of school-aged children with a diagnosable condition receive any intervention at all, despite most parents of these children seeking professional advice. This session will investigate different support strategies that children, who are at risk of suffering a mental health condition(s) can do to support these children. This session will have the most up to date research and intervention strategies that can be taken straight from this course and use back in school the very next day!

This session will be useful for all staff (mental health leads, primary, secondary and further education professionals) work with children that have autism or anxiety related problems. Suitable for teachers, teaching assistants, pastoral staff.

Course Content

· The most common mental health conditions, symptoms and signs in children

· What can we do as an educational professional to support children with mental health issues?

· Real life examples of children that have had different conditions of mental health difficulties and the outcomes

· Strategies to help children suffering with mental health issues
