Mental health presents one of the greatest challenges to our society. With an estimated 450 million people worldwide suffering from a mental health problem, around a quarter of British adults will experience some form of mental health problem, within the course of a year. While many elements of mental health are still not understood, having a good knowledge of the information that is available is essential in the care sector.
· Develop understanding and appreciation of mental health conditions
· Learn about signs, triggers and symptoms of mental health
· Understand how mental health affects an individual's ability to cope and function
· Examine guidance to potentially manage and support them with their illness
