This fascinating course results in an Endorsed Qualification awarded under Focus Awards’ FQP (Focus on Quality Provision) Scheme.
The course equips students with the essential grounding to realise a bright future in the health and social care sector, and particularly the specialist mental health (MH) field.
With a sharp focus on developing the knowledge and competences required to deliver effective and compassionate support to those afflicted with mental health issues, Community Mental Health Practice (Level 4) is ideal for those striving to advance their careers (perhaps for Continuing Professional Development – CPD – purposes).
As a student on this course, you’ll also be offered an incredible range of FREE extras to ensure you hit the ground running upon course completion.
According to the UK mental health charity “Mind”, approximately 25% of us (1 out of every 4 people) experience mental health issues each year. Although this number has not changed significantly in recent years (excluding during the C-19 pandemic), worries related to money, job security and loss of benefits can make it harder for people to cope.
This excellent course will give you a strong insight into the common causes of MH issues. Given the increased and growing awareness surfacing in society, it’s very likely that you will know or be caring for someone with a mental health concern.
If you want to work in the mental health sector, it is a first-class primer, and is also useful for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) if you’re involved in a related field or sector.
The statistics for mental health problems make for sobering reading. The following is reproduced from the Mind website (www.mind.org.uk):
Every seven (7) years a survey is conducted in England to measure and categorise the number of people who have different mental health challenges each year. It was last published in 2016 and reported these figures:
Depression 6 in 100 people
Anxiety 7 in 100 people
Mixed anxiety and depression 7 in 100 people
Phobias 6 in 100 people
OCD 3 in 100 people
Panic disorder 2 in 100 people
Post traumatic stress disorder 0 in 100 people
Eating disorders 6 in 100 people
The survey also reveals that 17 in 100 people have suicidal thoughts during their lifetime, and 3 in 100 consider self-harm. It is thought at least some of these should be attributed to PTSD.
