Behavioural & Mental Health Workshop
Tue, 6 Dec 2016, 09:00 – Wed, 7 Dec 2016, 17:30 Gulf Standard Time United Arab Emirates Time
“Two thirds of teachers feel they lack the appropriate training to help identify mental health issues in pupils per a new report.”
This workshop is designed for individuals who deal with children daily.
The aim is to provide in depth information on how to deal with Behavioural and Mental Health within schools, nurseries, children hospitals and other types of children organisations.
Teachers must be trained to spot signs of mental ill health in children if schools are to meet a new requirement to measure pupils’ emotional well-being.
Depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts in children don’t show themselves as obviously as a broken leg. This means it’s all too easy for a teacher to miss the tell-tale signs of emotional and mental health issues in children.
Many teachers are simply not equipped to meet the challenge of a rising tide of mental illness sweeping through our young people. They need help – they need training in mental health.
