Mental Health Awareness Course Introduction

What is Mental Illness? People often equate the words Mental Health with Mental Illness and there are many definitions of what mental health actually is.

Mental Health issues can happen to anyone despite social background, intelligence, gender or other factors.

80,000,000 working days are lost each year due to Anxiety and Depression and the current cost of mental health problems is around £105,000,000,000 per year.

Donaldson and Donaldson recognised the concept of altered mental health without the actual presence of mental illness or disorder. They said Mental Health is not just the absence of disorder, it is a state in which a person is able to fulfil and active, functioning role in society.

Who needs Mental Health Awareness Training?

  • Paranoia
  • Schizophrenia
  • Self-Harm
