Millions of people have either suffered mental health problems themselves or been impacted by the effect is has had on loved-ones. Fortunately, mental health is not the taboo subject it once was and people have become more willing to open up about issues that previously would have been avoided. However, there is still lots to be done and it’s important that we do all we can to help raise awareness of mental health and how it may affect people, both at home and in the workplace.
This mental health awareness course aims to support your employees and bring the topic into their consciousness so that they are aware of the impact poor mental health can have on themselves and others.
The e-learning is very flexible and can be added to an organisation’s intranet or learning management system, ready to be used by their employees. The benefits are huge, and you only ever pay once for the package making it extremely cost effective.
We can also provide this e-learning course on a subscription model, whereby the course is hosted by us and you pay only per user. Please take a look at the payment options at the bottom of this page.
