Contemporary Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Policy recognises the important role played by prevention and early intervention in improving the mental health of children and young people.  It is estimated between 50 and 75% of adult mental health difficulties manifested in childhood and  1:8 young people will experience a diagnosable mental health disorder. You will consider the current government policies, how these aim to address these issues within an preventative paradigm of care creating the opportunity to influence and inform your practice.  This CPD module offers you the opportunity to explore and critically analyse the concepts of mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention within your own practice and the wider context. A range of techniques, approaches and the theoretical underpinning them will be reviewed and connection to their application to practice will be explored. This will provide a wider range of knowledge to draw from when working with children young people and families.
