Learning resources promoting integration of physical and mental health launched

Health Education England has worked with UCLPartners and NHS mental and physical health experts to develop a suite of educational material for use across primary and secondary NHS health settings.

“Breaking Down the Barriers” aims to support education across the NHS workforce by providing the training materials to enhance existing skills, increase knowledge for early recognition, assessment, management and signposting of mental and physical health needs of patients.

A key aim of this work is to facilitate and encourage collaborative working and the sharing of resources and training delivery arrangement between NHS Trusts. The education and training materials cover the following areas:

  • Mental Health awareness in emergency and urgent care settings
  • Physical Health awareness in mental health settings
  • Child and Adolescent mental health awareness training for GP practices in primary care
  • Child and Adolescent learning disabilities awareness training for GP practices in primary care

The resources are a combination of classroom training, videos, simulation training, presentations, case based scenarios, case studies, tutorials and quizzes.

Breaking Down the Barriers awareness training packages and associated materials are available as a free downloadable resource from HEE e-Learning for Healthcare for use across primary and secondary care settings.
