Working with People with Mental Health Needs

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

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.
