Delivery of a learning consultancy project for the Metropolitan Police led initiative – a Mental Health Awareness and Safeguarding Training (MAST) website
- Mobile first, responsive
Working through our partners, Premier Partnership, we delivered a learning consultancy project for the Metropolitan Police led initiative – Mental Health Awareness and Safeguarding Training (MAST). This involved working with key stakeholders to develop a website resource – http://mastonline.co.uk/ – which compiled referral guides to provide information on local referral pathways to mental health support and safeguarding services for each of the London boroughs, provided a forum for key workers and signposted a number of other useful information sources.
The resource aims to promote the safety of young people in London by making it easier for practitioners to take appropriate action to support young people when there are signs that they are suffering from mental health issues and/or emotional trauma. The particular focus of MAST is the link between Mental Health, Emotional Trauma, offending in general and the harm caused by gangs, both to gang members themselves and to vulnerable victims.
The website resource includes experts talking on video and a ‘Did you know?’ feature publishes key facts and statistics about mental health, safeguarding and gangs. Identifying mental health symptoms offers key workers information on recognising a whole range of mental health problems and the care, treatment and support that people with certain disorders can access, as described in the NICE guidelines.
