What will you study?

Despite the progress made over the last 50 years, mental health conditions can still come with a stigma attached to them. This course aims to raise awareness of how the media contributes to negative perceptions and the importance of ensuring that individuals don’t become isolated as they seek treatment.

You’ll study a range of key topics, including suicide prevention, self-harm and the symptoms of common mental health problems. The course will look at how the family unit can be affected, substance abuse, and the relationship between illnesses and the prison population.

What can you do once you have successfully completed the course?

The NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Understanding Mental Health can lead to further study at Level 4, or opportunities to start a higher education course.

Skills including critical thinking and analysis are highly sought after by employers and this qualification can help you to enter new career paths in healthcare, psychiatry and social care.
