What is the Solihull Approach?

The Solihull Approach aims to increase emotional health and well-being through both practitioner and parent training.  In the UK the majority of health visitors are now trained, as are many midwives, social workers and child & family practitioners.

Also whole schools have been trained as have some within the police forces, fire brigades, adult mental health and even most recently, football coaches – emotional health is not restricted to one section of the community.
