Train the trainer course for Delivering Early Mental Health Interventions

YMCA Mental Health Train the Trainer Programme for Delivering Early Interventions: 26th November at Barrington Primary School, Cambridgeshire (CB22 7RG)

Increasing resilience is crucial to improving outcomes for young people and reducing the risk of mental health issues escalating.  With rising needs, coupled with budget cuts, our Delivering Early Interventions Train The Trainer course empowers settings to develop group work programmes for KS1-4 in a uniquely sustainable and cost effective way.

Forming a key element of our ‘Targeted Stage 3 Training’ as part of our newly approved Competency framework, this 1-day course covers evidence based practice using cognitive behavioural therapy and resource based approaches to address issues such as self-esteem, emotional regulation, social skills and transitions. Delegates will receive schemes of work, assessment tools, resources and on-going advice to help these early interventions become embedded into your setting.  You will then be supported via a dedicated clinical professional and receive on-going refresher training, peer support, as well as resource updates through the licence programme.   

As a special last minute offer, you can get 20% off places booked for the upcoming course on 26th November, with every second place FREE if you quote ‘Nov20’ when booking*
