What Will You Learn?

Over half of all cases of mental ill health start before the age of 14. This course examines mental health in this age group and the policies and services on offer in the UK. It also looks at how and why certain people are affected. What can be done by schools and individuals to provide intervention, prevention and support is another key topic.

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Diploma Course lays out the mental health policies and government legislation available for children and young people’s mental health (in the UK). It covers the education policy with regards to the same too. You’ll explore prevalence rates and statistics for children and young people’s mental health. From there, you'll also gain awareness of the gap in available treatment.

Mental health problems often start to develop in childhood and adolescence. But it can be difficult to distinguish between the signs of an emerging problem, or disorder, and more ordinary, everyday behaviour. This has made specialist support for this age group vital. This child mental health course will show how to identify the most and least common adolescent mental health problems.

Several vulnerable groups of children and young people exist. These have been found to be at an increased risk of developing mental health problems. These groups may also find more difficulty in accessing support. The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Diploma Course discusses these groups in detail.

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are NHS specialist services. They assess and treat children or young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Studying this course, you will discover the current service provision by CAMHS and Inpatient Services. The problems faced by these providers and their proposed plans for the future are covered too.

Mental health problems have a complex range of biological, psychological and social causes. These can see certain children being at greater risk than others. Conversely, protective factors are characteristics that reduce the likelihood of poor mental health. In this course, you’ll examine a range of risk and protective factors. All can influence the development of mental health problems in children and young people.

With the increased use of social media by young people, concern has grown over its impact on various aspects of mental and physical health. This course analyses the relationship between internet use and mental health problems in children and young people. It discusses the associated risks, alongside the positive benefits of internet use.

As you progress, the course deals with assessing and treating young people's mental health concerns. It is important to understand that mental health problems in young people are idiosyncratic in nature, so they need to be treated in a way that is helpful to them personally. There is no “one size fits all”. You will also learn the importance of outcome monitoring and receiving feedback from the child or young person on the care they’ve received.

Half of mental health problems start before the age of 14. Schools are in a vital position to prevent mental health problems, reduce stigma and employ policies to prevent bullying and discrimination. You’ll learn about the many ways schools can support children and young people experiencing mental health problems. In addition to this, you’ll look at the benefits of peer support in schools and school-based counselling. These forms of early intervention can help to prevent the development of mental health problems.
