Course description

Mental Health and Social Care

As a society, we are finally accepting the importance of good mental health. However, in order to achieve this we need trained, experienced mental health workers at our disposal. This course has been designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the principles and practices involved in mental health care in the UK.

The course is spread over six informative modules. These interactive, engaging units cover everything from mental health policy and legislation to treatments and interventions. By the end of the course, learners should be able to describe various concepts of mental health and evaluate how we handle these issues in Britain.
