Mental Health Awareness

About 1 in 4 people will need treatment and/or support for a mental health problem during their lifetime!  Despite this fact, people with mental health problems continue to face the effects of stigmatisation and a broader lack of knowledge and awareness.

 

This 1-day course introduces participants to the concepts of mental health and common mental health problems.  It explores the possible causes and contributory factors and also focusses on support and treatment and the role of support staff.  How do we support someone experiencing mental health problems, how can we help them to get appropriate specialist support and how can we work with them to help them maintain good mental health?

 

 

It aims to challenge commonly held misconceptions about mental health problems, and provide clarity and confidence to support staff and carers.  It also outlines the law in relation to mental health and the rights and protections it offers for those experiencing mental health problems.

 

The course features, videos, powerpoint presentations, group exercises, discussion and role-play.  Designed by a nursing professional with extensive experience of mental health it is suitable for:

  • Health and social care support staff
  • Non-clinical staff working in mental health support services
  • Staff in retail and customer services
  • Staff and organisations wishing to embrace appropriate support for colleagues and customers
  • Parents and/or carers
