One in four people will experience some kind of mental health difficulty within their lifetime yet much is still unknown or misunderstood about mental health conditions.
Many people who are given a label of a specific mental health condition, such as schizophrenia or bipolar, will then go on to be stigmatised or discriminated against because of this condition.
This new BHT course will explore how mental health conditions can affect the person, family & friends, and the community. It will also look at the media and cultural attitudes to this subject area and look at how support workers can ensure that their clients are treated with the value, dignity & respect that is their right. Person Centred approaches underpin the course.
This course will support you to:
- Develop your understanding of various mental health conditions such as bipolar, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety and eating disorders
- Reflect on the positive & negative effects of having a clinical diagnosis on the person, family & friends
- Identify some of the treatments available, both medical and non-medical
- Recognise the impact of the media on attitudes to mental health
- Explore the impact of the Recovery Model in supporting and empowering people with mental health conditions
- Develop your understanding of the Equality Act 2010 in relation to mental health
- Explore the impact of using a person centred approach when supporting individuals with mental health issues
