In this Mental Health Awareness course, we aim to increase your understanding of common mental health conditions and of your own mental health, including how or when it might suffer, and what you can do about it.

We show you techniques to regularly assess your own mental state using tools like the mental health continuum, which will help you take proactive steps to keep yourself well. We also explain what you can do to help yourself and others if you think there is a problem, including how to initiate conversations about mental health, and where to go for additional support. With 1 in 5 of us suffering in silence, it is important that we are equipped with knowledge and strategies to help us actively manage our mental health.

This course has been written with no particular workplace or profession in mind and includes information on the responsibilities and duties of all employers with regards to mental health.
