Welcome to the landing page for the "Children and Young People's Mental Health & Wellbeing: A Knowledge and Skills Framework for the Scottish Workforce", published in 2021

Children and young people's (CYP) knowledge and skills framework for the Scottish workforce

For everyone working with children and young people, we hope this framework provides a common language and shared understanding of the mental health and wellbeing needs of children and how this links with staff learning and development. The framework sets out the different levels of knowledge and skills required by members of the Scottish workforce to promote positive wellbeing and good mental health for children and young people. It is part of our wider work to improve the mental health care for children and young people.

The framework has been written in collaboration with partners across the Scottish workforce including health, education, social care and third sector organisations, and involved listening to what young people want and need from the adults that support them.
