Learning resources to support positive mental health outcomes for children, young people and families
Mental health challenges can be influenced by a number of factors, including individual, social and family experiences. For professionals working in social care, health and education, early recognition, good assessment and support can help maintain mental wellbeing and improve outcomes for children, young people and families.
To support Mental Health Awareness Week, Research in Practice has brought together learning resources to support positive mental health outcomes for children, young people and families.
Research in Practice offers multimedia learning resources to support professionals, including publications, podcasts, webinars and more.
Resources to support positive mental health outcomes for children, young people and families
This briefing, developed in partnership with NHS Clinical Commissioners, is aimed at those involved in the commissioning of mental health services and support for children and young people.
At a time of renewed government focus on children’s mental health and wellbeing, the new commissioning landscape offers opportunities to move towards sustainable change. By utilising new service models such as integrated care systems and engaging local partners in collaborative place-based commissioning, commissioners can take a strategic approach to driving change across the children and young people’s mental health system.
Designed for: Strategic and practice leads, service managers, heads of service, team managers in children’s and youth services.
Children and young people’s mental health is increasingly being reported in the media, highlighting the need to provide essential support. In this blog Paula Lewis, author of our recent Strategic Briefing, considers the role of commissioners in transforming the children and young people’s mental health system.
