Created By: ReachOut.com Professionals

CPD endorsed online learning from ReachOut.com Professionals provides practical tools for understanding the role of e-mental health services and using them to help young people you work with. 

What it covers

Adult demonstrating on computer
Many young people I work with have tried online support strategies, which they tell me, gives them a sense of knowing what’s happening for them, what to expect and helps them explore some options without having to rock up to every service.

We’ve launched new online learning that covers four essential areas for using e-mental health services in support work with young people.

  • The role of online services
  • Using online communities in your work
  • Using mental health websites and online programs in your work
  • Referring to online counselling and treatment services

These online services can be used in youth work, social work and other support work disciplines to help young people, and will make it easier for young people to work on their mental health before, during and after their sessions with you.
