Course Content (Syllabus)
The module spans the boundary between mental health and education. In doing so, it is hoped that it will provide the information and guidance future teachers need to help pupils identified as having mental health problems. The importance of mental health in children and young people is highlighted by recent concern about increases in children with disruptive behavior being excluded from schools, violence in schools and psychosocial disorders in young people. The module presents issues regarding a) the importance and the prevalence of children’s mental health problems, b) learning and mental health, c) factors influencing the mental health of children and d) the role of the teachers in addressing mental health problems. The aims of the module are to increase teachers’ knowledge of the range of mental health problems and disorders they may encounter, and of the strategies they might employ to address or/and prevent them
