Update on resources in Scotland

There are two new resources available created by the Scottish Government

The first is the Wellbeing for Wee Ones guide, as part of the Parent Club resources Wellbeing for wee ones | Parent Club. It has several helpful videos and has received excellent feedback.

The second is the Early Intervention Framework NES – Early Intervention Framework – Home (nhs.scot), a searchable database of evidence-based mental health and wellbeing interventions for children (and young people). There is comprehensive information for each intervention, across six key dimensions of implementation. Guided questioning supports how best to select and implement interventions; and a self-assessment tool enables evaluation of unique local implementation contexts. So it helps services to decide which evidence based tool is right for them.

This is the place where we can share news about local IMH events, training, organisations, and share our ideas and resources.
