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.

With the facilities & funds available to CVS I think there would be many more hands on & effective ways to help employees manage and improve their mental health. As a profession that is known to struggle with mental health I honestly think this doesn't go far enough & seems insincere in the grand scheme of things.
some useful advice presented in a non-condescending manner, actually felt as if there were things which could help me TODAY!
It really makes you aware of the hidden problems out there and in future try look for the small problems with family friends work collegues and even myself moving to an quiet area at lunchtime and also outside my office for 5 mins every so often things i would never have thought of.
Easy to take in and understand
A lot of it is common sense but it's always useful to revisit and refresh.

Kept me interested and felt it was valuable!
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.
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.
