What opportunities will this course give me?

Mental health now presents one of the greatest impacts on our entire society. Nearly half a billion people around the world experience mental health problems, and roughly a quarter of British adults will have had their own mental health challenge within the course of a year.

Despite this being a widespread issue, there are still countless elements and contributors to mental health that are simply not understood. And thats why our Level 2 certificate in Mental Health Awareness is so crucial.

This in-depth, valuable programme comes fully funded, and provides students with a deep understanding and awareness of symptoms and triggers, as well as how to appropriately manage stress, anxiety and phobias. These are crucial skills (both in personal and professional capacities) and are particularly beneficial for those working in the care or health sectors.

Youll leave with an actionable understanding of the different ways in which mental health can affect an individual, as well as what is involved in mental health legislation.
