ROAR is a first-line response aimed at equipping frontline professionals with the tools to provide early intervention, and support to children experiencing mental distress. The course also recognises the importance of building resilience in children. 93% of respondents to the citywide review said that they would benefit from more training around this. The ROAR response offers top tips for staff around building resilience in relation to specific mental health needs. It will also help them to spot the signs and symptoms of a child experiencing problems with their mental health.
We worked with Merseyside Youth Association to develop a logo and branding that would help shape their training offer to schools.
Overall, the project took 2 months to complete.
