Though the website we created for the Centre for Child Mental Health has been up and running for a while now, we’ve made a number of changes and tweaks over the last few months so thought this would be a great time to take a closer look at the organisation, the work they do and the website we built for this important cause.
Being a diverse organisation offering support and services for various mental health and educational issues, over the years we have created several sites to cater for their services. The child mental health centre which offers training webinars and presentations for schools and individuals, the Institue of Art Psychotherapy and academic partner to the Univerty of East London, which provides therapy and educational courses. And finally, Trauma informed Schools which provides appropriate training for schools, communities and organisations so that they become mentally healthy places for all.
The Centre for Child Mental Health
The Centre for Child Mental Health offers a range of courses, training days and events designed to help professionals to deal more effectively with children suffering mental health problems. The director of the organisation, Dr Margot Sunderland, is a highly respected child psychologist and British Medical Association award-winning author.
The courses offered by the Centre for Child Mental Health range in length and depth with everything from day or weekend training events to two-year, fully accredited vocational courses available. As well as its impressive range of courses and regular educational events for professionals and parents, the Centre for Child Mental Health also has a great range of informative books and DVDs that will help those interested in child mental health to learn more about the issue.
The website for this impressive organisation needed to be packed full of relevant information, as well as being easy to understand and quick to navigate. The Centre for Child Mental Health wanted to ensure that professionals and parents visiting the site are able to find what they were looking for quickly and easily, with a wealth of information available at their fingertips.
In order to fulfill this brief, we placed the menu clearly at the top of the page and built the site responsively to ensure the navigation bar is easy to find no matter what size screen the site is being viewed on.
As a lot of parents and professionals visit the Centre for Child Mental Health website to buy books, DVDs and courses, we integrated an ecommerce element into the site to make it even easier for visitors to find what they are looking for. Secure and straightforward, this inbuilt shop helps the website to offer a fully comprehensive service.
In order to make the Centre for Child Mental Health website attractive and easy to navigate, we kept the pages simple, sleek and spacious.
Information is clearly displayed and the entire site is built around the centre’s high quality, informative content. A page dedicated to useful links makes it easy for visitors to find other pages that may be of interest to them, while the secure online shop allows visitors to purchase products in moments.
