Mental Health Awareness

This half-day course is designed as an introduction to mental health to enable participants to understand and recognise common issues and their effects.  It is designed for management, staff or volunteers, as it demonstrates how to promote a better understanding for a healthy, non-discriminatory environment, alleviating unnecessary related stress for all concerned.

Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave.  Anxiety and depression are the most common.  These are often a reaction to a difficult life event, such as bereavement, but they can also be caused by work-related issues.
