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.

Introducing mental health and how to raise awareness

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.

Section 2 of our mental health awareness training looks at the different types of mental health problems

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.

Our Mental Health Awareness training also includes a wellbeing toolkit!

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.

We point you in the right direction for external help when it comes to mental health

Positive overall

Very informative. The videos crashed on a few occasions, and then they had to be watched from the beginning again. I accidentally clicked the wrong answer to one of the questions, but it wouldn't let me redo the test unless I watched all of the videos again.

excellent course

very helpful , I had no idea so much help is available

great work on a difficult topic.

Excellent. My only criticism would be that its a tricky topic to run as online training in that you don't really want to be interrupted (which I was) with something like that if you want to really absorb it .

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.
