Free online courses for parents

Devon Local Maternity System have purchased a multi-user licence for four Solihull Approach online courses, for all parents and parents-to-be.

This means every single resident in Devon, Torbay and Plymouth can access the following courses completely free of charge:

  • Understanding your pregnancy, birth, labour and your baby
  • Understanding your baby
  • Understanding your child
  • Understanding your teenagers brain

These courses are for everyone who wants to be the best mum, dad, grandparent, carer that they can be. The Solihull Approach aims to improve emotional health and wellbeing by supporting relationships. The courses are written by Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services professionals with other health and education workers. They are evidence based and accredited by the Department for Education.

Together, we are aiming to change the culture around parents’ self-development, while improving children’s wellbeing at the same time. A smoother home life is good for concentration, learning and performance at school.
