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.
