Covered in this course
The Mental Health Awareness Training for Education Professionals course is broken down into 4 sections.
1) Mental Health in Education
Over three-quarters of education professionals feel they don't have enough guidance or support at work to manage their own mental health.
In this section, we get introduced to Mental Health within the Education sector and raises the importance of mental health training and the common triggers of 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.

It is good to think about but the course was too long. Too much repetition in the first sections.

Really interesting giving me food for thought. The people who covered the areas were very calming and not belittling in any way. All the videos were informative but not over loading with information.
Mental health and wellbeing is something we all at times need to be more aware of, to be able to recognise either in ourselves or others and offer help or get help for ourselves, just asking someone if there ok could be all it takes for someone to open up and talk to you about how there feeling and hopefully will make a difference.
This course made me think about my own mental health as well as others. I am always on the go and spend most of my time supporting others (in and out of work) and don't often stop to think about myself. Although i do not feel that i have poor mental health i will be using the WAP to set myself targets to boost my well-being.
