Slow course because of using a mobile ph

To carry out a course on a mobile phone ,is just ridiculous, the phone keeps stopping ,the internet is absolutely terrible, very slow and lagging, this needs to be either done on a computer, or a proper tablet, I have noted this a number of times before but we keep getting courses on phones which are not suitable to take a course on. I suggest we have three or four people up at the office at one time and carry out a course on the big screen so everyone can learn correctly and not miss anything out ,and then answer the questions correctly without having to keep tapping the phone as it's gone black and you end up pressing the wrong answer, again this has been noted a number times before, on each course we have done but seems to fall on deaf ears

Poor

It is far tautological and repetitive. The presenters are patronising and long winded.

Mostly good and helpful

The course dismisses stress as: "the state of mental or emotional "strain" that comes from difficult or demanding experiences." This does not differentiate stress from pressure.from: Centre for Stress Management, London SE3 https://www.managingstress.com › definitions-of-stress Stress is the physiological, psychological and behavioural response by an individual when they perceive a lack of equilibrium between the demands placed upon them and their ability to meet those demands, which, over a period of time, leads to ill-health. – S. Palmer (1989). Occupational stress. The Health and Safety Practitioner, 7, (8), 16-18.A simple definition that can be used is: Stress occurs when pressure exceeds your perceived ability to cope. – S. Palmer, 1999.Chronic Stress is a significant issue due to its making one more susceptible to ill health, which in turn can further reduce one's ability to cope.Apart from that, the course contained plenty of useful information not only for recognising problems with mental health, but also for managing them.

Addressing the cause of mental illness

One very large problem with all such courses (so no implied criticism of this particular course), is they fail to address the often central issue of the cause of mental ill health. Helping to spot and provide suggested support does not get at the cause. More often than not the cause is the effect of a hierarchical system of management which permits manipulation and bullying. Hardly ever do you see it suggested that those who perpetrate these harms are themselves in all probability mentally unstable. Furthermore, such perpetrators rather than being outed are often rewarded so their behaviour is actually endorsed by the organisation EVEN when the true facts about their ACTIONS are known. It could be that there is a very big gain to be made in dealing with mental health issues simply by looking at who might be causing the harm and doing something concrete about this other than rewarding so reinforcing their errant behaviours.

It was adequate as a starter course

Course covered the basics of awareness but a continuation course offering more detail would be useful as a follow on.

General Basic Awareness

As anger, aggression are within the most common emotional responses to ill-mental health, predominantly poor male mental health, it would be beneficial to add into awareness training & at the end, how to communicate with a person you believe is not doing well, but showing signs of anger & aggression, how to approach as the resulting acts can be workplace violence.
