Emotional Wellbeing Training Courses to support professionals and school staff working with children and young people, and families.

Professionals and school staff can now access free emotional wellbeing training courses if they are worried about the mental health of a child or young person. The new training provides information to help raise awarenness of poor mental health and how to support a child/young person, and their families, with a potential mental health problem.

The training courses, which are available to book through SuffolkCPD Online website, have been developed as part of the Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing 2020 Plan, which is transforming services to support mental health needs of all children and young people in east and west Suffolk.

There are several courses available aimed at professionals who work with children and young people, and aim to provide insight into:

  • Mental and emotional wellbeing, and why it’s as important as our physical health,
  • Understanding the various pressures impacting a child or young person’s mental health, and how to spot the risks,
  • Common mental health symptoms, and how they can affect family life.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

There are certain risk factors that make some children and young people more likely to experience mental health problems than other children, and this may include some children with educational difficulties, but not always. The emotional wellbeing training courses are for professionals who work with children and young people, and families. 

The training gives professionals a better understanding of the various factors that may affect a young person's mental health, how to spot the symptoms of a common mental health issue, with guidance and resources that might be of help in supporting your child's emotional wellbeing.
