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, the policies and services on offer in the UK, how and why certain people are affected, and what can be done by schools and individuals to provide intervention, prevention and support.

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Diploma Course opens by laying out the landscape of mental health policies and government legislation available for children and young people’s mental health (in the UK), and the education policy with regards to the same. You’ll explore prevalence rates and statistics for children and young people’s mental health and gain awareness of the gap in available treatment.

Mental health problems often start to develop in childhood and adolescence. The problem is that it can be difficult to distinguish between the signs of an emerging problem or disorder and ordinary, everyday challenging behaviour. This has made specialist support for this age group vital. This course will show how to identify both the most and lesser common mental health problems that children and young people experience today.

Several vulnerable groups of children and young people exist who are found to be at an increased risk of developing mental health problems and who may 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 that assess and treat children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Studying this course, you will discover the current service provision for children and young people by CAMHS and Inpatient Services, as well as the problems faced by these providers and their proposed plans for the future.

Mental health problems have a complex range of causes, biological, psychological and social, which 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 that can influence the development of mental health problems in children and young people.

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

As your understanding of the topic increases, the course takes you through various approaches to assessing and treating children and young people for mental health concerns. It is important to understand that mental health problems in young people are idiosyncratic in nature and 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, meaning schools are in a vital position to prevent mental health problems, reduce stigma and employ policies to prevent bullying and discrimination. You’ll learn the 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 and how these forms of early intervention can help to prevent the development of mental health problems.
