There are still paces left on our Mental Health Awareness course, starting soon.
The course is Level 1 accredited and aimed at a wide range of people with an interest in raising their understanding of mental health issues. It would complement study in a range of areas, eg citizenship, PSHE, healthcare, social care, counselling or public services. It may also be particularly useful for those working within the voluntary and community sector and for others whose role calls for interaction with the general public in their day-to-day work. However, you do not need to be working or studying in any of these fields - you may just want to get a better understanding of mental health issues and how you can support those who may have them.
This qualification aims to:
- raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health difficulties
- dispel some of the myths and misconceptions frequently linked to mental health issues
- develop learners’ knowledge of the rights of those with mental health issues
The course is completely free and will run for six weeks. Each lesson is four hours.
Starting Wednesday 9 January at Hinchcliffe Community Room (Sheltered Scheme), 10.30 - 2.30.
