Fighting COVID19’s impact: Identifying and dealing with mental health issues
The COVID19 pandemic has had detrimental effects on all of us independently of whether we have been directly infected or not. The isolation and the virus’ socio-economic impact will continue irrespective of our age or background.
This certified e-course aims to train anyone wishing to learn how to improve their awareness and understanding of mental health problems and to be able to more effectively support people who are experiencing poor mental health especially in relation to the implications caused by COVID19. This includes service non-clinical professionals, healthcare users as well as friends, family members and work colleagues.
As with all RJ4All training programmes, this e-course aims to empower trainees, independently of background, to gain a voice on matters they feel passionate about. We place particular emphasis on supporting young people and youth workers as well as teachers and anyone offering youth services. This ecourse is also highly useful for any handlers of mental health help lines.
By the end of the course, you should be able to know:
- What is mental health
