Mental Health Awareness Training
Book online now

This course aims to raise awareness of mental health, and to understand and recognise the causes, symptoms and support options for a range of common mental health problems.

The course is for those who would like a better understanding of mental health conditions in adults. No prior training in mental health is required, and this masterclass will be helpful for those who, as part of their work, experience the impact of mental health difficulties on individuals, families and organisations.

The programme will cover:

  • What we mean by mental health, stress, emotional distress and diagnosable mental illnesses.
  • Models of mental health – normal life experiences, and the personal/social/organisational factors impacting on wellbeing.
  • How race, culture and gender impact on our experience of mental health
  • The common mental health conditions: signs and symptoms, causes, treatment and support of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, psychosis, self-harm and the risk of suicide.
  • What organisations can do for their team members who are struggling
  • What individuals can be expected to do for themselves
  • What to do when these steps don’t work and the problem worsens
  • How legislation and awareness programmes are changing attitudes towards those seeking treatment.
     

Facilitated by Jane Nathan; a medical education professional, with a background in Higher Education, Clinical Research (development of new medicines within GlaxoSmithKline; International R & D) and Medical Education (including taught courses, clinical experience programmes in hospital settings and e-learning, worldwide).
