What will I study?
The programme covers many issues including an understanding of what is meant by mental health and mental ill health. It also examines the legal frameworks that ensure high-quality care can be provided, and the impact of social and cultural perceptions. You will study the following mental health conditions; Stress, Anxiety, Phobias, Depression, Post-natal depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Dementia and Eating Disorders. You will examine each condition; exploring possible causes, how they affect the individual, their family and friends and how they may be managed.
How will I be taught?
Following enrolment with the assessor, learners will undertake completion of the assessments using the resources provided. As there is no need to formally attend college, you are able to learn at a pace which suits you. Feedback will be provided for each assessment book and any amendments will be completed and submitted by the learner as required.
How will I be assessed?
The certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of 3 workbooks. Learners must successfully demonstrate achievement of all learning outcomes. Assessments will be submitted using the method agreed and within the timescale negotiated with the assessor at enrolment. If requested, this may involve online submission. Once your Assessor is satisfied by your submissions, an Internal Quality Assessment (IQA) will take place. This ensures submissions are marked with consistency and fairness.
