About this course
Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearlytwo-thirdsof people say that they have experienced mental ill-health. In fact, the HSE report that mental ill-health (specifically stress, depression or anxiety) is now accountable for over 50% of all working days lost and 51% of work-related ill health in 2019/20.
One of the biggest challenges with poor mental health is removing the stigma that surrounds it. Many don't hesitate to seek help for physical pain or problem, yet so many of us ignore emotional and mental health issues - or we feel too embarrassed, confused or scared to talk about them. This Mental Health Awareness Training discusses mental health the way you would a headache or the flu, and it encourages you to take care of yourself as you would a loved one.
This course raises awareness, it explains how to approach mental health and remove stigma; and also provides simple tools, tips, and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing management (for yourself and others). It's also a fantastic supporting tool for organisations looking to achieve compliance with the newISO 45003 standard.

excellent tool for anyone suffering in
It should be encouraged more often at work place.
Factually okay, insensitive with advice.
Factually the course is good, providing a good description of symptoms to look out for and what help is there. But the training says not everything works for everyone and you its not something simple to just "don't think like that" or "suck it up". Yet later on the course says "Just don't think negatively", " Just set and achieve a goal", "Just talk to someone" as if it isn't the same as saying "Just don't be sad". As someone who has suffered from mental health I found it very insensitive as it isn't that simple to "just do this", and ignores the fact that people struggling may well be struggling with even those. The course should be limited to explaining what mental illness is, what the symptoms to look for within yourself and your colleagues, and explaining what help there is. the video explaining what mindfulness was and suggesting trying it the video is good, as it lets people try it or keep it in mind when they might need to try it, but does not imply "If you are suffering from mental illness, this is the remedy" like the other videos. In relation to this point, the questions at the end again should be only relating to facts and what help is out there, not have questions such as "If you are having a negative thought what should you do?" with the right answer essentially boiling down to "don't have a negative thought.".
Very good entry level training for MH-A
This training gave me a good understanding of the most commonly diagnosed metal health conditions . I would like to think it will allow me to offer some basic support to somebody who may be struggling. It also helped me to re-set my own thoughts by providing guidance that I may use personally in the future.
very useful tool
