This session covers some of the behavioural problems which can result from poor mental health in preschool children and the different strategies which can be used to prevent or manage them. Infant and early childhood mental health refers to the healthy social and emotional development of a child from birth to 3 years. For some families, referral onto specialist teams for further advice and support may be required.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Identify the main mental health disorders experienced by children
  • List the different causes of psychosocial problems in pre-school children
  • Outline the principal strategies for preventing and managing behaviour and emotional problems
  • Advise parents and carers on how to ensure the child’s healthy emotional development

In this session, we consider the mental health disorders that pre-school children may experience, the underlying problems that can cause them and the potential risk factors associated with these. We then look at different strategies for preventing and managing behaviour and emotional problems and the practical steps that parents can take to ensure their child’s normal, healthy emotional development.
