Understanding Mental Health in the Early Years

Children in their early years can suffer from mental health problems. Anxiety, ADHD, Depression and Post-traumatic Stress can all occur. However, the way these children process and respond to these problems can be vastly different to that of adult.

Course Description

Learning the significance of attachment and adverse experiences during this time is important to understand children’s mental health.

This course is essential for anyone looking to begin work with young children, those who work with children in their current role or even parents of a child in their early years, having a solid grasp on the importance of a child’s emotional wellbeing is vital.
