This course will provide learners with an awareness of mental health and the common problems that adults and/or children may experience.

Learners will gain an understanding of the mental health continuum and how an individual's mental health may change over time. They will explore risk factors for developing a mental health problem, as well as the effects that this can have on the person and those around them.

Learners will then gain knowledge of the common early warning signs of some specific mental health problems. They will also learn what to do if they recognise a person who may be struggling.

Finally, learners will consider how they can make a difference. As well as learning how to become more mentally resilient themselves, they will explore ways that they can challenge stigma and contribute to a positive mental health culture where everyone can thrive.
