    Youth Scotland is partnering with Place2Be to bring valuable mental health training to youth workers (paid and voluntary) across Scotland, particularly in this challenging time of a pandemic.

    This online mental health training enhances professionals’ understanding of children and young people’s mental health and introduces approaches that foster positive well-being for them and the adults around them.

    Course details include:

    • You will have a dedicated Place2Be professional to join discussions and aid online learning. 
    • It is a  5-week programme.
    • It is broken down into 15-minute sections to fit around your day (1–1.5 hours per week total).
    • No fixed timings - you can access the programme via any device and work through it at a time to suit you.

    Please register your interest in this training by 30 April 2021.

    PLEASE NOTE – 30 April 2021 is NOT the first day of the course, this is the date you need to register your interest by.  The course start date is Wednesday 12 May 2021. 

    Course modules cover:

    • Understanding mental health & well-being: Introduces factors that contribute to positive mental health and well-being.
    • Nature and nurture: explores how early experiences shape the way we perceive ourselves and relate to others, and how those experiences create the pathways in the brain that support our development.
    • How can I help? Considers what a child’s or young person’s behaviour might be communicating about their underlying needs.
    • Mental health is everybody’s business: reflects on the importance of positive mental health for everyone with a focus on the adults around the child or young person.
