What will I learn?

Mental health presents one of the greatest challenges to our society. With an estimated 450 million people worldwide suffering from a mental health problem, around a quarter of British adults will experience some form of mental health problem each year. While many elements of mental health are still not understood, having a good knowledge of the information that is available is essential in the care sector.

  • Gain skills and understanding to improve the experiences of service users
  • Understand the importance of duty of care in adult health and social care
  • Understand the role of the mental health worker
  • Learn the correct approach to care and management
