Mental Health Awareness
Explore the topic of mental health and why it is so important for businesses to consider employee wellbeing.
Many people still feel that there is a stigma surrounding the topic of mental health and that they cannot talk about a mental health condition without being judged. Within this module we will explore:
- What we mean by the term mental health
- Who can be affected by mental health issues
- Myths surrounding mental health
- Some common mental health conditions
Research suggests that 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health condition during our lives and that depression is an increasing mental health concern for many people. During this module we give you some practical advice on how to support someone with a mental health condition and why it is important to remove the barriers that prevent people from feeling comfortable to discuss mental health issues.
Upon completion of this module you will be able to access a series of factsheets on some of the most common mental health conditions and be signposted to support organisations.
