What you'll learn

During the course we’ll:

  • identify specific barriers that some children and young people face and how this impacts on their experience of and access to services
  • understand what stops mental health professionals, services and systems from reaching some young people
  • explore different approaches to engaging children and young people who face marginalisation and share a case study of successful participation

Why take the course?

  • Some young people are more at risk of experiencing health problems, and less likely to be able to access the health support they need because of the barriers they face.
  • This course will help you understand how participation can help overcome barriers and reduce mental health inequalities within services.
