About this course
The sad truth is that workers in the care sector have a suicide rate almost twice as high as the national average. Additionally, workers in this sector are vulnerable to a variety of mental health issues.
In fact, 84% of carers report that they feel stressed, 78% report suffering from anxiety, and 55% report that they have suffered from depression as a result of their work - care workers mental wellbeing isn’t always addressed or even considered by their employer.
Workers in the profession have some of the most emotionally challenging jobs imaginable. Caring for vulnerable people themselves, they often prioritise other's mental wellbeing over their own.

Why is this training important?
A recent survey revealed that 71% of carers in the UK suffer from poor mental health - 84% said they felt stressed because of their work, 78% said they felt anxious, and 55% reported that they suffered from depression. Carers perform such a vital role, looking after the most vulnerable people in society; but who is looking after them?
