The Mental Health Awareness Training for Care Workers course is broken down into 4 sections.
1) Mental Health in Care
Being the daily witness to the realities of poor mental and physical health has a huge emotional impact that isn’t always addressed by the worker or their organisation. This is one of the leading factors for a high prevalence of mental-ill health in the care sector. In this section, we look at the importance of training, common triggers for poor mental health
2) Mental Health Problems
In this section, we’ll be raising awareness of common mental health problems, particularly anxiety and depression. But we’ll also be looking at how stress and loneliness can have a big influence on your mental health.
If you’re interested in learning more, this section also has extra information on a small number of the other common mental illnesses!
3) Wellbeing toolkit
This section is your Wellbeing Toolkit that can help you look after your mental health on a daily basis. We appreciate that everyone has their own ideas about how to approach their mental health and wellbeing, so this section has a variety of insights, mini exercises, recommendations and some food for thought so you can use what suits you.
4) External Help
If your wellbeing is becoming a top priority for you, and you feel like you need extra support, there’s plenty of avenues you can go down - or even suggest to your family, friends and colleagues if they need some guidance.
This section provides some useful external resources that you may wish to use to aid your wellbeing.
