'Mental Health Awareness, for people working with the general public' is a half-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for whole teams and can be attended face-to-face or online.
This course is for people interacting with the general public as part of their jobs, to enable you to better understand mental health problems and unusual behaviour, and respond helpfully.
There are a number of jobs where knowledge of mental health issues, and the ability to respond well to disturbed or unusual behaviour, is beneficial both to the professional and the member of the public. These include jobs in public service facilities such as hospitals and libraries, jobs in the hospitality sector (such as pubs restaurants and hotels) and many more. So this course covers the major mental health problems that present themselves, the sort of behavior associated with these problems, and the most helpful way to respond: helpful both for the person concerned and for you the professionals.
Everybody, whether for your own benefit or for the benefit of others.
