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 very good course

Mental health has been very much in focus in recent years. We are all aware of the importance of talking to somebody if and when you find yourself struggling. I thought this course ticked a lot of the boxes in terms of informing people what things to look out for and how to help themselves if you ever felt the need. There are some good tools available to download too.

Some information was very useful in understanding yourself and help yourself. Many impacts come from others and there was little about inpacts towards others.

This was a very informative course
