Did you know one in four British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem each year? The most common is mixed anxiety and depression, but there are many other issues which have a huge impact on a person's life and the people around them. Anyone who works around people with mental health problems needs to understand each condition fully. Likewise anyone who has seen someone experience mental health problems would benefit from understanding the meaning, causes, effects, symptoms and management of the condition. This nationally recognised qualification covers all of these aspects and is the perfect place to start.

This course is split into 13 manageable units:

Unit 1: Understanding mental health

Unit 12: Understanding obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
