At We Can Talk we know that hospital staff often lack confidence and feel like they are unable to appropriately support young people in a mental health crisis. We also know that in the past there has been very little training or education around what staff can do to help. For those who are already part of the We Can Talk family we hope this learning tool is a helpful refresher. For those who are new, welcome to our family and we hope you find this introduction to the fundamentals of compassionate care helpful.
Everything we create at We Can Talk is designed to be relevant, informative and reassuring. It is not designed by out of touch experts, but by the people who get the situation best – hospital staff, mental health professionals and young people with lived experience.
As a result, we hope this online learning tool will feel different and far more valuable than any traditional “e-learning” you’ve done before – we promise this is not as dull as Information Governance!
We also recognise that time is a precious resource in a hospital and if you can’t get through the training in one go, don’t worry. Once you have registered we will send you a link that allows you to pick up where you left off and access all the content you’ve already covered (so you can go back and watch your favourite video!). Once you reach the end you can download a PDF certificate to use for your CPD records, revalidation or to show off to your friends and colleagues.
