Emotional Health and Wellbeing Training

Whole System Workforce Development Offer Support

This offer has been developed since 2015 and is based upon feedback from professionals, staff and volunteers working with children and young people (CYP) in Cumbria, across our ‘Whole System’ and outside of Specialist CAMHS.  Information was collated from a survey undertaken as part of our HeadStart Phase 2 programme, the outcome of a Serious Case Review and also from schools.  We found a need for consistent training and professional development opportunities to help the workforce identify signs and behaviour that could lead to mental health difficulties and/or indicate their presence. We also aim to increase the confidence of the workforce in having conversations with CYP experiencing mental distress and ensure they know how to seek additional help and support

Professionals, practitioners, staff, foster carers and volunteers, can obtain advice, information and support from:
•             ‘My Time’ Primary Mental Health targeted support teams
•             Public health school-age nursing team 5 – 19yrs
•             Edge of Care and Children Looked After Emotional Wellbeing Enhanced Practitioners

All staff (and parents/carers) can access the emotional wellbeing guide on the CSCP website
