The Mental Health Awareness course equips you to identify common mental health issues and determine the right action to take.
The course delves into the various forms of mental health issues, such as anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks, depression, phobias, OCD, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, loneliness, and stress. It also describes how you can look after your own mental health and support others with their mental health issues.
In essence, this qualification aims to boost your understanding of mental health and sharpen your skills, paving the way for career growth.
