Adolescent Mental Health Training

Do you want to improve your capacity to respond when a young person is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis?

Children’s mental health is a serious area of concern – around 10% of children are now reported to have a diagnosable mental health condition and of these, most report delays in accessing appropriate help. Therefore, it is important that we know how to recognise common mental health problems, know how they arise, what you can do to prevent them and how to support young people.
