Course Introduction

Millions of people have either suffered mental health problems themselves or been impacted by the effect is has had on loved-ones. Fortunately, mental health is not the taboo subject it once was and people have become more willing to open up about issues that previously would have been avoided. However, there is still lots to be done and it’s important that we do all we can to help raise awareness of mental health and how it may affect people, both at home and in the workplace.

This mental health awareness e-learning course aims to support your employees and bring the topic into their consciousness so that they are aware of the impact poor mental health can have on themselves and others.

It encourages them to consider the practical steps they can take to discuss concerns and apply actions to help those that might need additional help to overcome challenges.

Learners are given the chance to review methods of creating a healthier workplace and putting steps in place to ensure people get the support when it is needed. This is underpinned by a stress competency indicator that helps identify any weaknesses in their current skillset, so that they can develop personal skills to improve their ability to address the needs of others.

The main aim of the content is to help support a culture of support and wellbeing.
