About the Course

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. 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.

This qualification is designed for anyone looking to develop their understanding of mental health and the problems that can cause mental ill-health.

You can enrol on our FREE distance learning courses from the comfort of your own home, with all workbooks and assessments available online with the help of your tutor who will be assigned to support you throughout your training.

All you’ll need is a computer (laptop or PC, Windows, or Mac), tablet and access to the internet.
