Mental Health Training Resources for Professionals

The team at Compass GO… have produced a wealth of training resources to help support you and your team so that you have a better understanding about mental health and how it can effect children and young people.

Level 1 training resources

Level 1 training introduces the concept of mental health and emotional wellbeing, looks at the impact stigma can have on young people, and how their resilience can be affected by environmental and mental health factors. All of this is followed with ways to promote wellbeing within a school environment, and incorporate the Whole School Approach effectively within the setting. This hours and a half discussion-based training session is perfect for anyone working with children and young people in any capacity.

The level 1 training is delivered live by Supervising Practitioners in each education setting.

If you would like Compass GO… to provide the level 1 training for your team and to find out more contact our team on or call 01472 494250.

Level 2 training resources

Level 2 training is made up of 5 webinars totalling around 4 hours of content. The training will introduce ideas of understanding basic emotions and how to improve emotional literacy in young people, followed on with the most common mental health difficulties presenting in young people and some ideas for how to support someone struggling. There are skills to upskill professionals to complete a basic assessment around mental health and emotional wellbeing, and also some therapeutic skills that can be used when delivering basic intervention to young people and groups. The idea is that by the end, professionals will have the skills required to complete some universal intervention with young people who they have contact with, and know when to make onward referrals to external agencies.

Download the training workbook so you can fill it in and complete the exercises throughout the webinar series.

As part of the level 2 training you will need to complete a short pre-session questionnaire and a short post session questionnaire so we can assure that we are offering the best training possible that suits your requirements.
