Overview of Mental Health Problems

Aims and objectives

The objective of this qualification is to develop the learner’s understanding of a range of mental health problems, which could be used to support their role in the workplace or where they may work or interact with individuals with mental health problems.

Who is it suitable for?

This qualification is designed for anyone looking to develop their understanding of mental health and the problems that can cause mental ill health.

The free course is also suitable for those who already work in this area, anyone who wants to secure a job linked to mental health and anyone who wants to gain more knowledge for personal reasons.

Support your friends and colleagues

One in four British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem each year. 

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

Anyone who works around people with mental health problems needs to understand each condition fully. Likewise, anyone who has seen someone experience mental health problems would benefit from understanding the meaning, causes, effects, symptoms and management of the condition.

This nationally recognised qualification covers all of these aspects and is the perfect place to start.
