Mental Health Problems

Designed for people who are looking to enter into or progress within the health and social care sector, or with an interest in mental health.

Mental  health presents one of the greatest challenges to our society. With an  estimated 450 million people worldwide suffering from a mental health  problem, around a quarter of British adults will experience some form of  mental health problem each year. While many elements of mental health  are still not understood, having a good knowledge of the information  that is available is essential in the care sector, or indeed any  workplace.
