Supporting Parents Healthy Children

Estimated Duration: 
1 hour

Supporting Parents Healthy Children (SPHC) is a cross-workforce programme project led by Whāraurau. This short course is to orientate you to the Supporting Parents Healthy Children guideline.

The guideline sets out the essential and best practice elements of service design based on the evidence of what works to support both parents and their children. Engagement and utilisation of this will ensure that the wellbeing of children is everyone’s responsibility, not just infant, child and adolescent services. The guideline outlines essential and best practice elements of family and whānau-focused practices that all mental health and addictions services are expected to be actively working towards.

It is recommended that you complete the Te Pou E-module Working with Whānau before completing this short course.


Following the course, you will find a short quiz designed to help consolidate your learning. When you complete the quiz please hit the 'submit' button to receive your certificate. This course provides 1 hour of CPD.
