These resources include:
This programme will be developed over time to reflect the broad needs of our workforce, families/carers and children and young people, but in general aims to provide a platform of learning that can be accessed at different points over time and reflected upon in practice to support the emotional wellbeing of our young people.
The online resources and e-learning recommendation have been put together for all to have the opportunity to improve their understanding of emotional and mental wellbeing, and the training is intended to provide practical tools and knowledge for those working directly with children and young people.
Training is accessible via www.suffolkcpd.co.uk using the Multi-Agency icon on the home page. And all other relevant information relating to learning and development can be found HERE.
An online chat support service, Ask the 4YP Expert has also been launched, with experienced youth workers from Suffolk charity 4YP offering confidential advice every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 7 pm until the end of summer 2017.
Anyone aged 12 – 25 years can go online and ask a 4YP expert about any issue that is affecting them.
The Suffolk-focused website The Source has been refreshed to provide clinically assured information, advice, guidance and resources for young people to help them with issues that matter to them, including anxiety, depression, self-harm and eating disorders. The site has been developed to provide clear explanations to address what concerns young people and signposts them to support and further help.
We highly recommend that all staff working with CYP sign up and undertake this valuable training and signpost to parents/carers including CYP.
