Participation with Vulnerable Groups Training

Help young people who experience extra vulnerabilities to have their say in the design and delivery of mental health services

Update: Regarding training and Covid-19

In line with Government guidance, we are extending our pause on face to face delivery of services until September. You can still register interest in our training and consultancy work here. We are keeping our booking system open for future dates from September and will continue to review the situation and contact you with course details going forward. We will be reviewing our plans regularly in line with Government guidance and will get in touch with you as soon as our training and consultancy services can resume. Please refer to our terms and conditions for more information.

What you'll learn

This introductory course will help you understand what we mean by extra vulnerabilities, how they can create barriers for young people in the mental health system and how you can enable meaningful participation despite these barriers.

By the end of the course you’ll:

  • Recognise the current understanding of participation in your organisation and identify strengths, enablers and barriers
  • Understand key additional vulnerabilities that some young people face and how this impacts on accessing services
  • Understand different approaches to engaging vulnerable young people, looking specifically at what methods work in different circumstances
  • Know practical short-term and long-term steps to engage young people with extra vulnerabilities and remove barriers

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 vulnerabilities they face.

Through this course, you’ll understand how participation can help to overcome these barriers and reduce mental health inequalities.
