Covered in this course
The Mental Health Awareness Training course is broken down into 4 sections.
1) Mental Health Awareness
This section introduces mental health and raises awareness about removing stigma, the importance of mental health training, the common triggers of poor mental health, and it provides an insight into the influence of negative thought patterns.
2) Mental Health Problems
Section two talks about poor mental health and how to manage it - particularly loneliness, stress, anxiety and depression. It looks at changes in behaviour and what to keep an eye on, and it has additional resources that provide an overview of other mental illnesses, such phobias, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, eating disorders and panic attacks - to name a few.
3) Wellbeing Toolkit
This section is your wellbeing toolkit that can be used to manage day-to-day mental health. It offers a variety of insights, mini exercises, practical strategies, recommendations and some food for thought so you can use what suits you. It also explains the importance of creating a Wellbeing Action Plan at work.
4) External Help
This short final section is a hub for external mental health management. It offers you many starting points for improving mental health, or simply to maintain good mental health. It provides information on books, magazines, websites, apps, helplines and the different types of counselling and therapy that are out there - and how you can get started.

Fits in perfectly well with practice.
Sound on video not constant so continually trying to decrease or increase for easy listening. Stress!!!!!
Overall hopefully useful for those with limited or no experience of mental illness or mental health issues, but for someone who is autistic and has struggled with depression and anxiety, I found it patronizing, simplistic, and honestly, I'd have been better off going and using some of the toolkit than having to wait for each video to finish so I could take the test, which is also ridiculously easy to pass (Didn't listen to any of the video, skimmed the transcripts only, still got 100%...).
Too many trendy slides that do not inform or delve deeply enough into this very important subject
Educational and informative with lots of good practical tips.
LEARNT A LOT ABOUT A SUBJECT I AM VERY INTERESTED IN RESEARCHING AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT
No summary provided
a very good and informative training session.
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.
Under the HASAWA 1974, employers must “so far as is reasonably practicable” protect the health and safety of employees by removing or reducing workplace risks.
If someone has a mental illness, like anxiety or depression for example, for over 12 months and they can show that it’s causing them substantial disadvantages at work, it can be classed as a disability. This means the employee is protected by the Equality Act if colleagues or their employer were to discriminate against them because of their mental illness. It also means that their employer is legally required to make reasonable adjustments to support them at work. But even if it’s not classed as a disability, management should always offer as much support as they can.
