Behind the behaviour

‘Behind the Behaviour’ is a multi-agency training programme designed to increase awareness and understanding of a range of mental and emotional health problems for professionals and front-line staff working with children and young people.

Commissioned and delivered in partnership with CAMHS, each training session is delivered by a Mental Health specialist or other professional, ensuring that participants are gaining the most up-to-date and relevant information about current services and provision in Manchester.

Training is practical and engaging and useful for anyone working directly with children, young people and their families, both in and out of an educational setting.
