Strategies for mental health and well-being are a priority for all organisations seeking to improve their productivity, capability, reputation and quality of outcomes.

Prioritising mental health and well-being in the workplace is rapidly gaining traction through political and social campaigning.

People are challenging the ‘always-on’ 24/7 culture, and the term ‘work-life’ balance is emerging as a requirement, rather than an aspiration.

When you look at the evidence it is startling… from the report by the BMA – “The impact of COVID-19 on mental health in England” – Key Findings!!

1. Social isolation can have a negative effect on mental well-being
2. An economic downturn risks mental health
3. Experiences of living through the pandemic could cause or worsen a mental illness
4. There are concerns about the impact on specific populations
5. Some NHS and other frontline workers may need additional mental health care and support

Its amazing how many organisations don’t have the correct strategies in place to combat the impact of mental health on their workforces…so to counter this we have launched this new developmental programme to help professionals working in mental health and well-being arena to formalise their skills in this area so that we can give better support to our people.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
