Unsure about how you can best help a young person going through a mental health crisis?
Tuesday 24 August 2021
HEE are delighted to announce with colleagues at Healthy Teen Minds the launch of mental health crisis learning resources.
These resources have been designed by young people, working with professionals too, allowing you to hear directly from them about what helps in a moment of crisis. The tools complement existing training and education. They aim to build an individual’s confidence to have effective conversations and provide personalised support to a young person in a mental crisis.
The short Crisis Tools learning guides HEE have supported are:
- What you need to know
- How to start the conversation
- So you want to talk about risk?
- How to wrap things up
We need to ensure this learning resource gets to the front line, especially to those who work in health and care, educational and emergency response settings. Please share these online tools with your networks.
Leading up to World Mental Health Day on 7 October 2021, you can join the Healthy Teen Minds online Crisis Tools celebration event.
