Description

This 14 hour course teaches adults how to assist adolescents who are experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem.

The course is suitable for adults working with adolescents (those aged between 12 and 18 years), however, it can also be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older.

Course Content

Participants will learn about adolescent development and the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
