About the Course
This Mental Health Awareness Training course is designed to give an overview of different types of mental ill-health and some basic techniques for managing mental health and promoting general psychological well-being.
According to the mental health charity Mind 1 in 4 people will experience poor mental health each year, and 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England. Despite these figures there is still a stigma attached to mental health and the symptoms of mental ill-health that means people who are struggling do not always seek help.
This course will explain several common mental health conditions and signs that might help to identify if someone is struggling with them. We will also look at techniques that can be used in order to make conversations about mental health more approachable and aid in building a culture of understanding.
This course takes around 30 minutes to complete.
All courses translated into over 30 languages.
