Mental Health in Education

This course is specifically designed for staff working in educational settings who are tasked with supporting the growing population of young people facing mental health challenges.

With lengthy waiting lists for CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) and other specialist services, schools are increasingly burdened with addressing the psychological needs of students. The primary objective of this course is to enhance staff members’ understanding and confidence in dealing with mental health issues, equipping them with key skills that can be implemented immediately.
