Resources page for staff working in mental health and suicide prevention at the Enhanced level.

Introduction

The 'Enhanced Level' focuses on the knowledge and skills required by staff working in health and social care, and wider public services, who have regular and intense contact with people experiencing mental distress, mental ill health, and may be at risk of self-harm or suicide, and whose job role means they can provide direct interventions. The knowledge and skills requred at this level become increasingly role and context specific which means educaiton to support practitioners is too.  The knowledge and skills framework can help you to identify any learning or development needs within the context of your role/environment.
