stress disorder, along with bipolar disorder, panic disorder, sleep apnoea and social phobia. You’ll learn about symptoms and causes – and the actions to take if you suspect someone has a mental health condition.

We’ll discuss the role of mental healthcare professionals, such as a psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses or clinical social workers – and show how parents can become involved. Treatments covered include psychotherapy, mindfulness, play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and medication. We’ll deal with prognosis and prevention – and show how to promote positive mental health and dispel common myths.

Finally, you’ll learn practical techniques to help you talk to children or young people about their mental health.
