In which case, this course could be of significant interest to you!
Recent studies suggest that 1 in 10 children experience mental health problems. School teachers are, in the main, not trained to deal with mental health issues and staff are finding it increasingly difficult to support pupils with these problems. Dr Nijabat and her world-renowned team use their experience and expertise working on the front line with depressed and anxious children and teenagers to help teachers to understand the importance of their role in identifying and managing common mental health problems in children and young people.
Please note that this course material does not, for one minute, advocate that teachers are solely responsible for their students’ mental health, merely, that they have a responsibility to help.
