Course description

Mental Health Awareness - Level 2 Certificate (RQF) Course

The Mental Health Awareness – Level 2 Certificate (RQF) Course is designed to be studied by a broad spectrum of health care workers who would benefit from a greater understanding of Mental Health Awareness issues. It is equally suitable for the personal development of experienced health care workers or for those new to the industry.

The course includes topics son such issues as understanding mental health, stress, phobias, anxiety, eating disorders, post-natal depression and schizophrenia and will lead to a fully recognised RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework) qualification in this subject. These are nationally recognised qualifications that are superseding the old NVQ framework qualifications.
