ACES Assessing and Understanding Children’s Mental Health (1 Day) – (May 19th)

May 19 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

This training day will help you learn about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how these impact upon the mental health of children and their families.

We will cover practical ways to identify and assess pupils’ mental health needs. You will be introduced to a range of effective methods for assessing mental health difficulties, and have opportunities to practice these during the day.

You will learn ways to effectively use the outcomes of assessments to help yourself, young people and families better understand mental health needs, as well as ways to use assessment to help inform intervention plans and requests for support from external agencies.

All slides and resources, and additional training materials, will be available to download after the session, to enable attendees to cascade the training within their school settings.

Course Reference: LEHS1


Cancellation Policy

These training courses normally cost around £200-300 for a 2 day course, but are being offered free of charge by LCC Public Health. Because places are very limited, we do need to charge £50 per person or late cancellation and non-attendance. Please be aware that in order to complete the course and avoid this fee you will need to attend the full course. It will not be possible for you to leave early or miss a section of the delivery. Once you’ve booked onto the training, please keep this date in your diary and arrange cover for any emergencies which might crop up.
