Jigsaw pieces making up head with words in relating to mental healthCourse Overview

This course is to bring awareness to people, staff and managers which can assist in showing that mental health issues are present wherever we are. That we reduce or eliminate the stigma attached to someone who discloses they have a mental health issue.

We hope that we can bring to your attention the early signs of mental health issues, that you can engage and listen to someone who opens up and discloses information around their own mental health.

By following the information provided, we can prevent self harm or possible suicide attempts. The right professional help is signposted for them and that we assist in their recovery by just being there, able to listen and not judge.
