Mental Health and Adverse Childhood Experiences

What is this training about?

This training will help you learn about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how these impact upon the mental health of children and their families.

The aims for this topic include:

  • increase awareness and understanding of mental health and mental health problems in young people.
  • learn how we can understand mental health as a universal phenomenon, and through communicating this information to others, improve empathy and reduce misunderstanding and stigma around mental health difficulties.
  • understand the importance and impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
  • learn ways to put information together to form a better understanding of a young person’s emotional health, and to inform intervention plans and requests for support from external agencies.

This course is delivered as either a two hour online session via Microsoft Teams, or as a full day face-to-face session at Lancaster University/community venue.

What have previous attendees said about this training?

“This course was excellent, providing a well-planned combination of presentation and engagement activities.”

“It was really useful to understand children’s behaviours in terms of whether there is an underlying issue or cause, as well as think about what their behaviours might be communicating.”
