Supporting positive mental health & well-being can really impact on an individuals outlook and achievement. Mental health issues are normal part of everyday life. One in four people in the UK will experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any given year. Unfortunately, the long-standing stigma surrounding mental health means that many – if not most – of us don’t really understand what mental health means.
There are healthy ways in which you can think about mental health, and there are unhealthy ways, but either way, mental health has to be taken seriously and stigma – and any other reason why people don’t ask for help when they need it – must be systematically stamped out by everyone who cares.
Good mental health is not simple the absence of poor mental health, but a set of strategies that we can practice to promote positive mental health and well-being. We will look at what can affect a person’s mental health, like where and how you were brought up, what has happened to you throughout your life, your current circumstances, your personality and a host of other factors so that you can really understand and grasp the concept of mental health.
So, in summary, this course is dedicated with providing you with a healthier approach so that you can help yourself and the people around you have happier, more fulfilling lives for longer.
