- The three Tier 1/2 modules comprise three sessions per module, with nine sessions in total. These three tier 1/2 modules are each divided into one universal session followed by two more specialised sessions. All sessions are open to all users. These three modules provide an introduction to challenging behaviour and positive behavioural support, mental health problems amongst people with learning disabilities, and advice and guidance about supporting people with learning disabilities and autism.

This module is aimed at professional Tier 2 health and care staff.

The five sessions cover epilepsy, physical health care, transitions to adult mental health care from children’s-young people’s services, psychosis, bipolar and depressive disorders in young people.
