Mental Health Awareness training course

The Mental Health Awareness course aims to emphasise the importance of mental health. Moreover, it focuses on its significance to physical health and its pervasive influence across all aspects of life.

Similarly, our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are dictated by how well we feel mentally. We all have ups and downs. However, suffering from a mental illness for a length of time can change someone's life completely.

Therefore, we need good mental health to flourish, look after ourselves and have good relationships with other people. Furthermore, it is vital to meet the needs of people who have mental ill-health as well as protecting and promoting mental health. Although, part of this is recognising how important mental health and wellbeing is.

Moreover, in this Mental Health Awareness course, we will look at understanding what mental health is. We will also identify some of the most common mental health problems and ways people can be treated and supported.

Furthermore, this course forms part of the online care certificate. Therefore, you can complete the care certificate with Grey Matter Learning as part of our course offering.
