Unit 2: Promotion of mental health and well-being

This unit explores the factors that influence mental health and well-being at specific stages of a person’s life, from infancy through to late adulthood, with consideration given to how the effects of adverse childhood experiences and economic, social and personal factors contribute to overall mental health and well-being.
