About the course

Mental health problems impact around 1 in 10 children and young people. These issues include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder and can often be a direct response to occurrences in their lives. Emotional wellbeing is just as important as a child’s mental health, and this course helps those working with children and young people to have a good understanding of the concepts, risk factors and impact of mental health.
