Awareness of Mental Health Problems Level 2
This interesting and highly-informative qualification aims to raise learners’ awareness of not only mental ill-health but also the steps that can be taken to protect mental well-being.
Mental distress takes many forms and the course explores twelve different mental health conditions. These include depression; bipolar disorder; stress and anxiety; phobias; obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia; eating disorders and dementia.
Learners will develop an awareness of the signs and symptoms of these conditions and how they may affect people’s day-to-day lives. They will also gain insight into how these conditions can be successfully managed.
