About the course

This one-day course will introduce practitioners to paediatric mental health, the common conditions and what to look out for.  It will also identify the relevant pathways for onward referral of patients and the legal responsibilities including consent.

Three children in every class in the U.K. have a mental health problem. Identifying and getting the right help is imperative due to the lifelong implications of little or poor management. As osteopaths we have the privilege of spending longer with our patients allowing us to identify potential problems. Many of us do not feel equipped in this important area of patient care which will be addressed by this course.
