This course will provide an overview of a range of mental health issues including their prevalence, signs and symptoms, causes and how they can affect people. The aim of the course is to help participant’s recognise the impact that mental health issues can have on individuals. The session will focus more specifically on the needs of adults with both a mental health need and learning disabilities helping staff to recognise the signs and symptoms, understand how to access appropriate support services and how to promote good mental health for the people they support.
I found the course very informative and enhanced my knowledge of mental health and learning disabilities
