    What are the benefits?

Who is this course for?

The overall objective of the programme is to ensure that professionals in universal services for children and young people (such as schools, primary health care, social care, foster care, youth work, fire service, police, voluntary sector) have sufficient knowledge of children’s mental health to be able to identify those who need help, offer advice and support to those with minor problems, and refer appropriately when necessary. This is a multi-agency course for staff and volunteers who work directly with children and young people. Job roles may include pastoral staff, SENCOs, learning support assistants, children’s centre workers, health visitors, police, nurses, social workers, family support workers, residential workers or youth support workers.
