In this course, we will look at what we mean by good mental health and emotional well being and why this is important for children and young people in their development and their capacity to learn and forge positive relationships as they grow up.

We will look at how mental health and emotional well being is rooted in early attachment relationships with parents and/or primary caregivers. We will consider some of the risk factors which may impact on a child or young person’s mental health, and the consequences for pupils in schools.

We will look at the important role that schools can play in providing teaching and learning for children and young people, with opportunities for healthy attachment relationships between staff and children and young people, to foster positive mental health for their growth and development and achievement.
