Mental Health Awareness

Issues with mental health can affect anyone, regardless of intelligence, socio economic background, gender, or any other number of factors. Mental health is often unfairly associated to mental illness when there are numerous definitions of what mental health actually is.

Over this course we’ll explain the difference between mental health and mental illness. We’ll then look at the symptoms of the most common mental illnesses, so you’ll be able to recognise these and know what to expect if you work with anyone with one of these conditions. We’ll also give practical advice on working effectively with people affected by these conditions
