When you think about caring for people, the first thing that comes to mind is probably helping them with daily tasks, like washing, dressing, and taking medication. These are all vital parts of making sure people in your care are as comfortable and well looked after as they can be.

But sometimes it’s easy to forget about the mental health and well-being of people you’re caring for. 1 in 4 adults will experience at least one mental health need in their lifetime, and those responsible for patient care in any healthcare setting should be aware of these conditions. This will help you to provide the right level of compassion and to contextualize behavior that may, initially, seem hard to understand.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize the importance of mental health and well-being awareness in healthcare settings
• Identify how the demands of those in care may have to be considered depending on their own specific mental health needs
• Support the mental health and well-being of people in your care through the promotion of positive attitudes

Why take this course?

Mental health is just as important as physical health, so anyone working in healthcare must have an awareness and understanding of it. For healthcare workers, and medical or healthcare assistants, this course is ideal. You’ll learn why mental health awareness is so important, how to recognize mental health considerations for those in your care, and how to support well-being.
