Social work should have some mental health training

Social work should have some mental health training

I want social services to have training in mental health so that they have a better understanding of children and young people who suffer from mental health conditions and the best way to help families and support them.

Why is this important?

It's important because at the moment they don't have an understanding of how mental health affects everyone differently especially children & young people and I believe that they should have some training in mental health so that they have a better understanding of each case and how to deal with each case specifically and what help and support they can offer Families to help keep children & young people at home instead of not knowing how to deal with children & young people who suffer from mental health conditions and so they don't end up being placed away from Families which can have a negative affect on the children/young people.
