MSc CAMHS Simulation
This full-day course is aimed at multiprofessionals working with young people who are currently enrolled in the MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health at King's College London. Specifically, it will focus on the assessment and classification of mental illness, and preventive steps to ensure good mental well-being. The course will explore the role of the young person’s family and support network in mental health and well-being, as well as examining the challenges and benefits of collaborating with their support network.
