Mental health | Safeguarding Training Centre



Mental health disorders are emotional and behavioural problems that are “outside the normal range” for a child or young person’s age or gender. To be considered a mental health disorder, the problem will be particularly severe or persistent over time, or the child will experience multiple problems at the same time.

Examples of mental health disorders include emotional disorders, conduct disorders, and developmental disorders.
