Level 2 Functional Skills in English or equivalent, learners may find it helpful if they’ve already achieved a Level 2 mental health qualification, or qualifications in healthcare or social care contexts.
Learners will gain an understanding on:
• Mental health legislation, services, and public attitudes and how these have evolved
• How to support mental well-being through various stages of life
• Mental ill health, treatment options available and the potential consequences of mental ill health

A work placement may be required for your course. If this is the case, the College will support you in completing a DBS application.
Successful completion of the required units will allow the learner to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of mental health. It will also support learner progression into relevant employment within the health and social care sector.
