Crisis Tools

Health Education England is supporting the promotion of the Healthy Teen Mind Crisis tools. 

The Crisis Tools learning sits on a new publicly open website – and are presented in video and text format with accompanying downloadable guides. The four Crisis Tools learning content covers:

  1. What we need you to know? – outlines key challenges and strategies that individuals need to know before they begin their interaction with a young person in crisis.
  2. How to start the conversation. – features practical tips to help set up for success and build trust when supporting a young person in-person, over the phone or online.
  3. So you want to talk about risk? – explores the risk conversation from a young person’s perspective, including how to get the conversation back on track when things go wrong and practical approaches.
  4. How to wrap things up. – covers key tips and strategies to help end a conversation in a collaborative way that feels safe for everyone.
