Critical incidents can have a range of impacts for everyone in the learning community. The role of the learning environment in promoting a mentally health community, preparing for critical incidents and being responsive in times of crisis have been shown to be crucial in ensuring that people receive the help they need.
These two modules aim to empower you to act effectively to limit the impact of critical incidents, by recognising and understanding the possible impact on children and young people. They also aim to encourage positive, timely and appropriate interventions in a normal, familiar setting.
