Anyone can be affected by a mental health condition and it is now more vital than ever we begin the process of removing stigmas and getting an educated understanding of the signs, symptoms and what support we can provide. This could be for ourselves, family members, friends or colleagues.
This course is suitable for everyone but has been designed to help employers and community groups including sport clubs, to create a positive mental health culture and to provide learners with comprehensive knowledge on a range of the most common mental health conditions and the skills to be able to act should a condition be suspected.
