Course description

Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems - Funded Online Course

Are you looking for mental health training? UK employers, particularly in the health and social care sector, are increasingly interested in their staff having a sound understanding of a range of mental health problems. This qualification aims to raise your awareness of mental health and a range of mental health problems. You will gain an understanding of prevalent mental health problems and how you can then work with or interact with individuals with them.

Anyone who works around people with mental health problems needs to understand each condition fully. Likewise, anyone who has seen someone experience mental health problems would benefit from understanding the meaning, causes, effects, symptoms and management of the condition. This nationally recognised qualification covers all of these aspects and is the perfect place to start.

I was told about this course from my line manager. I really enjoyed this course and I want to learn more about Mental Health Illness. I found it very useful and I now understand a lot more, I feel more comfortable talking and listening to people with a mental illness.
