Course overview

Statistically, 1 in 4 people are suffering from a mental illness or disorder. And in all likelihood, you won’t know who. That’s because mental illness can take many forms, such as stress, depression, paranoia, sleeping problems, anxiety, panic attacks and suicidal feelings. You might not be able to tell from looking at a person whether they are suffering. But this short course is designed to help you recognise key ‘warning signs’ in yourself and others so that you can take appropriate action.

Learning objectives:

  • Different types of mental illness
  • Advice on what physical symptoms you may notice (the warning signs) 
  • When and how to help
