Dandelion Training and Development, providing online mental health training and resources for parents and professionals working with children and young people.
1 in 6 children currently experience mental health challenges. That equates to at least 5 children in every classroom. How confident do you feel about your knowledge of mental health and your ability to support them?
We know that when children feel better, they learn better. Mental Health impacts our cognition, social skills, self-care, mood and physical health. Which is why Dandelion Training and Development’s focus is to offer high quality, current and practical mental health training and resources to parents, early years’ providers, schools and further/higher education facilities.
Supporting children to develop a positive sense of self and mental well-being relies on strong partnerships with all those who care for and work with children and adolescents. Dandelion recognises the importance of continually updating professional development to ensure that the quality of care is of the highest standards. Which is why we are constantly developing new courses, resources and workbooks to help you provide the best early intervention.
If you wish to purchase courses for your school or early years setting, these can be purchased as a group booking.

Dandelion's BIG Child Mental Health Survey
In 2021, we launched our Dandelion BIG Child Mental Health Survey, to gain the views of parents and carers on the impact of the pandemic on child mental health.
167 parents/carers responded to the survey and you can now download the full report of our findings, including the key summary.
Being aware of the issues affecting families allows us to better shape education, resources and support moving forward. For education and care providers, this is an opportunity to evaluate the current training, knowledge and resources available in settings to support the children and adolescents that they work with. You can access the report here.
