Young People's Mental Health: When to worry and when not

Participants will know whether they should be seriously concerned about the mental health of a child or adolescent.

Workshop objectives

Participants will know whether they should be seriously concerned about the mental health of a child or adolescent.

One of the most challenging questions teachers now have to address is: “Is this young person’s behaviour something I should be really concerned about?”

Sometimes it really is. Sometimes it’s concerning but not deeply troubling. Sometimes it falls within the range of normal child or adolescent behaviour. This workshop has been designed to help you make these judgements - to know what to make of what you see before you and to feel more confident about how to respond.

Workshop content

This one-day workshop will include:

  • Why making judgements about the emotional and mental health of young people is challenging
  • What’s “normal”?
  • The “look fors” of (i) concern and (ii) serious concern
  • Particular examples and case studies of children and young people with varying degrees of concerning behaviours
  • What to do if you have very serious concerns about a child

Target Audience

A one-day workshop for teachers and other school staff.

Presented by Anna Scarr, Independent Trainer and Consultant in Child Mental Health.

Lunch and refreshments are provided.
