    • Course overview

      Did you know that one in four British adults experiences at least one diagnosable mental health problem each year? 

      The most common is mixed anxiety and depression, but there are so many other issues which have a huge impact on a person’s life and the people around them.

      This course is designed to help those who work around people with mental health problems to understand each condition fully. It would also be beneficial to anyone who has seen someone experience mental health problems and would like to find out more about the meaning, causes, effects, symptoms and management of the condition. 

      This is an online course. You will receive your welcome email with further details within 48 hours of enrolment. Once you have enrolled, you will be asked to provide a copy of an official form of ID, such as passport, before receiving your login details.
