Course Description

This course is designed to help staff and organisations understand and support children whose mental health problems manifest themselves in behaviour.

The Safeguarding Children course is designed to help staff recognise their existing roles and responsibilities in relation to promoting good mental health and wellbeing whilst understanding the link between mental health and behaviour.
