This course is aimed at providing learners with the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost the person towards professional help. This module will focus on reducing stigma, self-care along with how to deal with self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

The course is accredited by OFQUAL.
