Child and Young People’s Mental Health (CYP-MH) Trainings are a national suite of service transformation and new workforce programmes led and contracted by NHS England Workforce, Training & Education (NHSE), of which a large part is training for managers, supervisors, and high and low intensity therapy practitioners in delivering evidenced based, accountable therapies. Students are staff from the NHS, Local Authority and Voluntary Organisations. The CYP-MH programmes follow National Curricula.
The Post Graduate Diploma in Education Mental Health Practice (EMHP) is a new workforce training role developed in response to the Government Green Paper on transforming young peoples’ mental health provision, which has been commissioned since 2019. The EMHPs are based in schools as part of a Mental Health Support Team, delivering under supervision, high quality, brief outcome-focused evidenced low intensity interventions for children and young people with common mild-moderate mental health problems in education settings.
All programmes are based in the Department of Psychology, School of Mental Health & Psychological Sciences (MhAPS), Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London (KCL).
