About this course
Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearly two-thirds of people say that they have experienced mental ill-health and evidence suggests that poor mental health is responsible for almost 13% of all sickness absence days in the UK.
One of the biggest challenges with poor mental health is removing the stigma that surrounds it. Many don't hesitate to seek help for physical pain or problem, yet so many of us ignore emotional and mental health issues - or we feel too embarrassed, confused or scared to talk about them. This Mental Health Awareness Training discusses mental health the way you would a headache or the flu, and it encourages you to take care of yourself as you would a loved one.
This course raises awareness, it explains how to approach mental health and remove stigma; and it also provides simple tools, tips and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing-management (for yourself and others).
Happy staff equal healthier, more productive and more successful staff. Put simply, good mental health is a win-win for every employee and their organisation.

A good introduction to the subject without getting too technical. Some very clever imagery used and plenty of additional content which is a useful resource to dip into for futher information. Possibly something that all employees should have access to as the more people who are aware, the more the mental health issue stigma will be reduced.
