CAMHS training portfolio

Our training is aimed at anyone who cares for or works with children and young people. The training sessions that we deliver will enhance your awareness of the chosen topic, and help you explore and identify mental health concerns that may present within children and young people.

The training is a good foundation for understanding different mental health concerns that may affect children and young people. The key elements of the training packages include how to identify the concern, but most importantly highlight self-help/supportive strategies and resources that can be used.

We attempt to use a variety of learning approaches and welcome informal and anonymous case discussion to improve and develop the practice of course attendees.

NB: Morning sessions are 9.30am-12.30pm and afternoon sessions are 1.15pm-4.15pm

Please see attached training schedule for 1st November – 31st March 2019
