Are you an HR professional trying to enhance your well-being plan or a line manager looking for advice on how to help your staff more effectively? Then enrol in our Workplace Mental Health course to ensure employee mental health in a more planned manner.

One of the most prevalent reasons for absenteeism from work is mental illness, which is expensive for employers due to lost productivity, subpar customer service, and higher hiring costs. A survey claims that 1 in 6.8 persons (14.7%) have mental health issues at work, and evidence points to mental health issues as the cause of 12.7% of all sick days in the UK. This Workplace Mental Health course looks at the different concepts related to mental health at work. You will study about schizophrenia as well as mood and personality disorders, eating and sleeping disorders, and stress and anxiety disorders. You'll discover the causes of suicide and other self-inflicted injuries. You will gain knowledge of mental health services, legislation, and the use of medication and therapy in the treatment of mental illness. Additionally, you will learn about social attitudes toward mental illness.

With the aid of this educational Workplace Mental Health course, if you hold a managerial position at work—whether in HR or line management—you will be better able to comprehend staff members' mental health issues and identify a solution. With the help of this course and additional education and training, you may be able to land the job of your dreams as an occupational health nurse. With time and more experience, you may advance into management and take charge of a group of occupational health employees, or you may decide to work for yourself as an occupational health consultant. After completing this course and with further education, training, and experience, you may also try out for other relevant job opportunities in the field, such as mental health nurse and social work assistant.

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.
