Would you like more knowledge and understanding of mental health issues? Whether you work within the voluntary or community sector, have an interest in gaining further awareness of the subject or want another qualification to add to your CV then this course could be for you. On this course we will tackle the negative attitudes that surround mental health and separate the myths from the facts, we will discuss ways to support people to talk about the problems that they are facing and what steps we can take to help them open up to friends, family or colleagues. You will develop your knowledge of the rights of those with mental health issues, enabling you to challenge negative attitudes and offer positive support and advice.

Please note that the exam fees for this course may be liable to change.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times.
