What you'll learn

This introductory course will improve your knowledge of participation and help you understand how it applies to young people in the mental health system.

By the end of the course, you’ll:

  • Understand key terms and definitions associated with participation

Why take the course?

Offering genuine opportunities for children and young people to have their say in the care and treatment they receive, and participate in the design of mental health services, can ensure they reflect young people’s needs and have a stronger impact.

Meaningful participation also helps young people understand that their views matter, which is known to aid their recovery.
