The Early Help for Mental health (EH4MH) Service is underpinned by Future in Mind (2015), a document that promotes positive mental health as everyone’s responsibility. In line with this government strategy, the Introduction to Young People’s Mental Health training has been designed to work with schools to support a national culture shift which embraces social and emotional wellbeing and early response to signs of mental health problems. This training has been developed by Young Devon and validated by the University of Exeter.
What the training aims to deliver
- It explores how schools can empower individuals to have a responsibility for the wellbeing of everyone around them, looking at strategies which increase the emotional literacy and resilience of young people
- The training focuses on the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive, it considers tools which can be used with young people and an increased awareness of other services available
- The training provides teachers and other educational professionals with the opportunity to reflect upon their own policies and consider how these meet the needs of their young people
- In addition the training aims to give teachers and other educational professionals an opportunity to look at how their own mental health needs are being met and how this could impact upon the young people they work with
