Education in an Acute Adolescent Mental Health Unit

Tatjana Ewais , Ranji Goundar

A growing body of knowledge and evidence based practice confirms that academic education for people with severe mental illness is a necessary part of their overall rehabilitation and successful recovery. This paper confirms that acute mental health inpatient settings can be places of learning and, with the right approach of experienced teaching staff, can offer a significant difference to young people's lives, by creating a path to further education, meaningful life and recovery. Inpatient adolescents present a range of mental health issues such as mood, anxiety, psychosis, social, intellectual deficits and trauma are some of the frequent presenting problems.
