Self Harm & Suicide Awareness in Children & Young People

“Self-harm is more common than many people realise, especially among younger people. It's estimated around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, but people of all ages do. This figure is also likely to be an underestimate, as not everyone seeks help.”
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/self-harm/

“Self harm is difficult to accurately estimate, but the highest number of admissions to hospital for self harm is in the 15-25 year old age group” (Self Harm in Kingston Annual Public Health Report, H. Raison, 2014) http://www.kingstonccg.nhs.uk/Mental%20Health%20Strategy.pdf

Impact of Parental Mental Health

Mental illness affects around 25% of the adult population at some point in their lives, and is more common among those with dependent children. Although this does not necessarily mean a parent will have difficulty meeting their child’s needs, for some there will be a need for targeted intervention (e.g. from Early Help Services) or specialist intervention under the Children Act 1989.

This course will develop a practitioner’s ability to assess and meet the needs of children in families where parental mental illness is a feature. This training is delivered by a consultant trainer with experi ...

Depression in Children & Young People

According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, ‘depression usually starts in the teen years, more commonly as children near adulthood. They state that ‘feeling sad is a normal reaction to experiences that are stressful or upsetting. However, when these feelings go on and on, take over your usual self and interfere with your whole life, it can become an illness’ (2016).

Depression rates in children and young people have increased by 70% in the last 25 years (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2016). It is important that those working with children and young people know the signs to look out ...

Eating Disorders in Children & Young People

Eating disorders in the UK affect both males and females and in the most recent report published by the Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health in 2013 estimated that “over 1.6 million people in the UK are directly affected by an eating disorder. This figure is likely to be an underestimate of the issue. The illnesses most commonly begin in in adolescence and young adulthood with a worrying trend towards younger children developing an eating disorder.”
