Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace

What the course is about

Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience mental health problems each year? Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support friends, relatives or even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health. By developing a greater understanding of common mental health conditions, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help to reduce

the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.

The QA Level 2 Award in Understanding Mental
Health in the Workplace (RQF) is a regulated and
nationally recognised qualification that has been
specifically designed to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions in the workplace and how best to offer support and guidance to colleagues. During this course, candidates will develop a greater understanding on the importance of positive
mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and the role that everyone plays in recognising and handling mental health issues at work.

The course is £100 + VAT.
