Understanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health

NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate

Overview

One in ten children have a diagnosable mental health condition, and 75% of mental health problems have begun by the age of 24. Mental ill health can affect a young person in every area of their life, including family, school, friendships, the workplace and the wider world. 

Mental ill health in children can be worsened by negative stereotypes and stigma from the media who portray mental illness as shameful and dangerous.

This free course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of mental health conditions including depression and anxiety, the legislation and guidance surrounding mental health, risk factors that may affect mental well-being and how to build resilience against these, and the impact mental health concerns may have on young people and others.
