It is estimated that one in four adults experience some form of mental health problems during their lifetime. Therefore, mental health is becoming an increasingly important aspect of health provision in health systems around the world.
Anxiety, depression and severe mental problems affect not only the individuals concerned but also their families and friends. Mental health problems result in reduced quality of life and possibly loss of life. It is therefore important to understand mental distress and the ways it can be treated.
This free online course will be of great interest to professionals in social and health professions, for anyone who has personal experience of mental health problems or anyone with a general interest in this growing matter.
