Reviewed by: Jenny Miller, Training Manager at Aspect Training Ltd
World Mental Health Day was held on Wednesday 10th October this year and as we prepared our awareness raising information for the day, I realised I myself only had a very brief awareness of what mental health is and that I wouldn’t know what to do if a colleague or someone I knew had a condition.
Therefore I thought I would take our very own Mental Health Awareness course online. With a busy schedule, it was the ideal course only taking 25 minutes to complete and could be done in my lunch break!
For someone with very limited knowledge, I felt that after completing the course I had definitely increased my awareness of what certain mental health conditions are as I received great overviews of bipolar, psychotic disorders, depression, anxiety, personality disorders and self-harm.
As well as giving me an overview of the signs and symptoms so I could learn to recognise them, the course also gave me some helpful tips and pointers on what to look for and how to help those who may have a specific mental health condition.
I would recommend this course to anyone who hasn’t attended or completed an awareness course before and who, like me, wants to learn the basic information of a range of mental health conditions in case it could help a colleague or friend in the future. I also learnt that mental illness and mental health are different terms and that mental health issues can in fact happen to anyone, say due to a stressful situation, not just specific groups or people.
