The National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health recognises that the best way to support infant and child mental health is through early intervention and prevention. To do this, our focus is on building the capacity and strength of our workforce so that professionals can better support parents to support the mental health outcomes of infants and children.
There is substantial research documenting the association between adult problems and poor outcomes for children. Parental alcohol and substance misuse, mental health problems, family violence and homelessness are commonly described as ‘key risk factors’ for child mental health. Therefore it is important to engage the workforce to influence attitudes and beliefs about child mental health by building understanding of the impact of adult problems on parenting, the parent-child relationship and the mental health outcomes for infants and children.
The aim will be to engage with organisations to promote quality improvement strategies so that parenting practices can be enhanced, infant and child mental health supported and the effects of trauma and harm reduced.
By nominating your interest you will be linked with a Child Mental Health Workforce Consultant who will support your organisation to gauge readiness and to develop action plans to enhance organisational practice to support mental health outcomes of children (0 to 12 years). Free online training and development will be enhanced through the delivery of face to face workshops and workforce development support.
