It is important for those working with children and young people to have a good understanding of the concepts, risk factors and impact of mental health. Emotional well-being is just as important as a child’s mental health. Understand the factors which may affect children and young people’s mental health and how to support them.

“I’ve really enjoyed doing this course and had great support from my assessor. I feel that I have a better understanding of the mental impacts that young people go through.” Nathalie
