About the Event
On this one day course, learners will be introduced to a variety of mental health conditions and how they may present. Learners will also be introduced to attachment theory, developing an understanding of how mental health conditions can develop over time and learn why relationships are important for wellbeing.
This qualification provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a range of mental health conditions, how to start a supportive conversation and when and how to signpost a person to seek appropriate professional help. Learners will know how to recognise and manage stress and understand the impact of substance abuse and addiction. They will learn about the first aid action plan for mental health, be able to put it in place and know how to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace.
Learners will not diagnose or treat mental health conditions as this can only be carried out by healthcare professionals but will gain the knowledge to identify when a person may have a condition and know where they can go to get help.
