It is particularly relevant for those working in a variety of settings within the public, private, voluntary and community sector. Approximately one in four adults in the UK will be diagnosed with a mental health issue at some point in their lives. Although this figure indicates that most people will have first-hand experience of mental distress whether it is themselves or someone they know, many people with mental ill-health face stigma and discrimination.

The course is for any learner who is interested in their own wellbeing or would like to increase their understanding of Mental Health. It is particularly relevant for those working in a variety of settings within the public, private, voluntary and community sector.
