The alarming statistic that 1 in 4 of us will encounter a Common Mental Disorder (CMD) at some point in our life is frightening (NHS, 2014). That represents 25% of the coworkers you are familiar with. One-fourth of your family. One-fourth of everyone. So we developed this Mental Health Awareness Diploma at QLS Level 5 course so that you know how to give mental health counselling and help people, and also earn money in the process.

Awareness of mental illness is now more crucial than ever. Working from home, loneliness, homeschooling, health issues, financial problems, and an overwhelming sense of uncertainty negatively impact our mental health and well-being in this era of unprecedented change.

The first module in the Mental Health Awareness Diploma at QLS Level 5 course covers what mental health is. Then, to identify them in ourselves and others, we start to look at the transitory and severe mental health issues that are present around us, as well as their possible causes. The Learners are advised how to start dialogues about this somewhat awkward subject. Additionally, they are given advice on what to watch out for, how to receive assistance, and how to maintain their health for both themselves and others.

The Mental Health Awareness Diploma at QLS Level 5 course also covers the repercussions of ignoring mental health issues and gives instructions on finding support inside and outside the workplace. A greater emphasis on the topic is required now more than ever because mental health awareness is equally as vital as physical health. Even for those of us who are not employed in the medical industry, this Mental Health Awareness Diploma at QLS Level 5 course offers insightful information that is simple to understand. So what are you waiting for? Enrol today!

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?

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.
