Level 2 Certificate in Mental Health in The Early Years

The early years of childhood are critical for development. Learning the significance of attachment and adverse experiences during this time is important to understand children’s mental health. Children can be exposed to several traumatic experiences throughout their early years which can impact their mental health – and these experiences can contribute to mental health concerns in later life. Whether you are looking to begin work with young children, or you work with children in your current role, having a solid grasp on the importance of a child’s emotional well-being is vital.

This qualification is designed for learners who wish to understand mental health in young children in the early years (from birth to 5 years old) and the role of the Early Years Practitioner to support children’s mental health and well-being. This is a knowledge-based qualification. Through achieving this qualification, learners will develop knowledge which would support progression to further qualifications and into relevant employment in the health and social care or education sectors.
