Developed alongside professionals at the Mental Health Foundation, PEP TALK was initially used to support young people returning from COVID-19 lockdown. The resource can also be used as a framework to help you support young people going through a period of stress or trauma.

Understand Adverse Childhood Experiences

You’ll start by examining Adverse Childhood Experiences – a widely-used term in child mental health and education. Though the pandemic has been a traumatic experience for many young people, it is not the only source of trauma and so learning how to discuss childhood experiences that could have contributed to trauma is extremely beneficial.

You’ll also evaluate the role of physical health and the ways you can support young people in maintaining their emotional wellbeing when faced with stress or trauma.

Discover the different factors that affect mental wellbeing during COVID-19

As lockdowns start to ease, you’ll consider how young people will cope with the transition back to ‘normality’ and learn the ways you can help them manage these difficulties.

You’ll also discover how awareness about COVID-19 and wider global crises, living conditions, and peer isolation impacts young people.

Learn how to help foster a positive mindset

Finally, you’ll explore the benefits of a positive mindset and how you can help young people remain positive during times of stress.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to explain some of the underlying factors that contribute to a young person’s wellbeing and the actions you can take to support a young person to make positive changes for their mental health.
