Mental health is talked about and thought about now more than ever. Whether it is mental health provision, mental health in the workplace, or mental health in education, it is a topic in the forefront of everyone’s minds. But how much do you really know about mental health? What exactly is mental health and how does it relate to physical health? What are some common triggers of mental health?
This workshop is essential for those wanting to learn the fundamentals of mental health. It includes an introduction to the topic and covers mental health disorders. From the numbers behind mental health in the UK and worldwide, to tips around encouraging positive mental health, this workshop is suitable for people not acquainted with the topic all the way to mental health professionals themselves.
You will take away the knowledge that will enable you to understand the topic of mental health, and key tips such as identifying the different types of mental health stressors and early warning signs, and how to improve your wellbeing.
