Children and Young People's Mental Health Online Course

The course begins by outlining what mental illness and issues are and how they affect children and young adults. There's extensive coverage of the many types of mental illnesses found in this group, and how they can be recognised and treated.

In addition to eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating, we'll also discuss ADD/ADHD, depression, and self-harm. Schizophrenia, autism, learning disabilities, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, sleep apnea, and social anxiety are among the additional mental illnesses covered.

You'll learn about symptoms and causes - and the actions to take if you suspect someone has a mental health condition. We'll discuss the role of mental healthcare professionals, such as a psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses or clinical social workers - and show how parents can become involved.

Psychotherapy, mindfulness, play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and medication are among the treatments covered. We'll discuss prognosis and prevention, as well as ways to encourage good mental health and dispel common misconceptions.

Finally, you'll learn practical techniques to help you talk to children or young people about their mental health.
