We regularly hear about ‘mental health’ but what does it really mean? This engaging course will give you an awareness of issues around mental health difficulties.
This course aims to:
- Raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health difficulties
- Dispel some of the myths and misconceptions frequently linked to mental health issues
- Develop learners’ knowledge of the rights of those with mental health issues
The qualification is appropriate for a wide range of people with an interest in raising their own understanding of mental health issues. It would complement study in a range of areas, e.g. citizenship, PSHE, healthcare, social care, counselling or public services.
It may also be particularly useful for those working within the voluntary and community sector and for others whose role calls for interaction with the general public in their day-to-day work.
You will achieve the qualification by demonstrating your knowledge of the specified criteria. Along with the class activities, you will have written work and homework to complete.
Part-time courses are term time only. See our term dates for further information.
