At the end of this course they were able to:

  • Define mental health and some mental health issues
  • Understand the factors that affect mental health
  • Identify the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health issues
  • Feel more confident starting a mental health conversation
  • Understand how to look after your own mental health

No prior knowledge was required to attend. This course was for anyone aged over 16 with an interest in mental health or wellbeing – whether that is for themselves or assisting friends, family or colleagues in the workplace or community.
