The effects of an undiagnosed, deteriorating mental health condition can be devastating. Loss of self-esteem, trouble maintaining relationships and unhealthy thought patterns can lead to maladaptive coping mechanisms and physical threat to life. Mental health disorders present an increasing problem in our society today and are non-discriminatory in who they choose to affect.
This online course in Mental Health Awareness has been developed by healthcare training experts, Espirita. It seeks to highlight the issues related to mental health disorders and ensure that learners are equipped with practical knowledge on how to recognise, manage and support those suffering from poor mental health – which could include themselves.
