Event description


In December 2017, a government green paper - Transforming Children and Young People's Mental Health Provision was issued for consultation by the DfE and DoH. Its three main themes are:

  • Encouraging schools to identify a Designated Senior Leader for mental health, who will receive additional training

  • Creating Mental Health Support teams linked to groups of schools and colleges, to address the needs of young people who have mild to moderate mental health needs

  • Trailling shorter waiting times for accessing other mental health services

To set the context for the day, the course facilitators will explain the background to the green paper and how it is likely to be taken forward. This will include a link to the change in the SEND Code of Practice (2015) from BESD to SEMH, and to Changes to the teaching of Sex and Relationship Education and PSHE - a call for evidence - which closed on 12th February, 2018.

This will be followed by:

  • learning moreabout what is meant by mental health

  • why it is important to understand what neuroscientists are discovering

  • how to help children and young people with mental health needs engage with learning

The afternoon session will be interactive and participants will be asked to bring their own portable IT devices so they can explore online materials.

Facilitators: Professor Barry Carpenter CBE OBE, and Dr Rona Tutt OBE
