Mental Health Awareness (Level 1)




This session is aimed at volunteers with local community groups who want to increase their awareness and understanding of mental health issues so that they can improve their own wellbeing and be better placed to support others.

Specifically the course will cover:

  • what is meant by the term mental health
  • the definition and causes of mental health difficulties
  • common perceptions of mental health difficulties
  • how stereotyping can affect perceptions
  • where appropriate support can be sought and
  • cultural diversity within mental health issues

The course is accredited through the Northern College of Further Education.
All attendees will be supported to complete a workbook during the session to achieve a level 1 qualification.
