Level 3 Certificate in Understanding Mental Health (Online Course)

With increasing worries at each life stage, whether linked to exam pressure, work expectations, unemployment or financial difficulties, it is not surprising that individuals may struggle to cope with the demands of everyday life.

Approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. This is why it is more important than ever before to increase our understanding of mental health in order to tackle this growing health concern and challenge the stigma attached to mental ill health.

This online qualification will enable you to develop a thorough knowledge and understanding of mental health and well-being. It will equip learners with the skills needed to work in a mental health service, making it ideal for those who want to progress in the health and social care sector.

The course is split into five manageable units, to be completed over five months:

Unit 1: Understanding the context of mental health and well-being.
Unit 2: Promotion of mental health and well-being.
Unit 3: Mental health problems: associated issues and consequences.
Unit 4: Understanding mental ill health.
Unit 5: Working in mental health.

The course can be fully funded via an Advanced Learner Loan which only becomes repayable when you earn over £25,000 per annum.
