Practical Vs Theory
This qualification is designed for any learner that wants to raise their awareness of more common mental health conditions and the problems that can cause mental ill health.
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 within the course of a year.
While many elements of mental health are still not understood, having a good knowledge of the information that is available is essential in any sector.
You need to be aged 19 or over at the start of the current academic year to be able to enrol on one of our Distance Learning courses.
You will also need to be working at or above Level 1 in English.
We will assess your level of English before we enrol you onto the course and can signpost you to our Functional Skills English courses to upskill if necessary.
