Psychological Perspectives in Education and Primary Care (PPEPCare) training has been designed to help staff and volunteers to recognise and understand mental health difficulties in children and young people. It offers appropriate support and guidance to children, young people and their families using psycho-education and relevant psychological techniques, such as using a cognitive behavioural framework. Training consists of instructive teaching, experiential learning, group discussion and DVD material and is delivered by a qualified member of the local CAMHS services.
