Mental health issues are common, with around 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health issue each year in England. They are highly varied and can affect people in a range of different ways, including making them feel stressed, anxious or depressed.
Previously, it was the case that people with depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions would not talk about them with others. However, open discussions about mental health that have taken place over the last few years have helped to lift the stigma previously associated with the topic and can make it easier for us to talk about our mental health with others.
This mental health course is designed to provide staff members in any industry with an understanding of mental health problems, and how to look after their own mental wellbeing and that of those around them.
