Course Aims

The Mental Health eLearning course aims to introduce you to the topic of mental health problems.

It begins by introducing the psychiatric classification system and explaining its strengths and weaknesses. It then outlines the different categories of mental ill health and signs and symptoms of each. Our Mental Health eLearning course also examines five different frameworks for explaining mental health problems, including the medical model, social model, cognitive behavioural model, psychodynamic model and vulnerability-stress model. The Mental Health online course helps you identify indications of mental ill health and examine the impact that mental distress has on the individual and others around them. The module explains the different support and treatment options and also introduces three legislations particularly important when dealing with mental health problems.
