Introduction to Mental Health

Introduction to Mental Health

Mental health affects 1 in 4 people per year. Those affected by mental health difficulties can include the individual as well as family, friends, professionals, and people of all walks of life. You may be a manager looking to support an employee, or a frontline worker wanting to know how to respond and signpost. Feeling prepared to help someone facing mental health difficulties and having this understanding required to be effective and confident will directly influence the lives of this in distress.
