Additional training for teachers and employers

Teachers are usually the adults who are around a young person most and therefore has a great position to be able to notice mental health problems in teenagers and kids before they become debilitating. Right now these children are being missed out due to a lack of training in mental health and recognising the warning signs. Teachers are not in a position to treat these conditions this is understood but are in the best position to recognise and prevent them. This could include training in Trauma, ACE's, the signs of anxiety and low mood, the different reasons anger may be displayed as well as the effect of parental mental health on a child. The training for employers could be similar but could also bring in factors such as employment, finincial stress and the impact of workload on employees.

This could include training in Trauma, ACE's, the signs of anxiety and low mood, the different reasons anger may be displayed as well as the effect of parental mental health on a child. In adults, this position could be taken on by the employer which although different they are still in a position of recognising these signs.
