This course introduces the statutory responsibilities to carers. It defines the scope of “proportionate and appropriate” assessments for carers. It encourages participants to consider the process of analysis, evidence informed decision making, critical thinking and encourages reflection within the assessment and planning process. The course enables participants to consider what is needed to provide a reasoned defensible decision in the context of strengths based approaches.Essential Information
Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18. They will teach you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them towards the support they need. In doing so, you can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse. This course won't teach you to be a therapist, but will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happeningEssential Information
