Course Information

We often hear about mental health issues, mental illness, psychological disorders, and so on, but what do we actually mean by good mental health?  This course helps you to understand the signs, symptoms and possible treatments of adult mental health problems.

Managing mental health is far easier if the sufferer is positive about addressing their problems, and willing to make an effort to help themselves. Although this may not always be possible, for instance those with depression are often unable to think positively, an optimistic attitude can be very helpful.

Mental health professionals should, where possible, attempt to help a sufferer to help themselves. Often this means finding ways to alleviate severe symptoms which the individual has little or no control over, and then educating the sufferer in terms of practical techniques and strategies they may be able to use to help control symptoms.

There are 9 lessons in this course:

  1. Introduction to mental health issues
  2. Depression and related conditions
  3. Anxiety, phobias and OCD
  4. Schizophrenia
  5. Antisocial personality disorders
  6. Eating disorders
  7. Dementias

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
