Make the Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness part of your curriculum

Even before Covid, there has been significant changes to Ofsted’s approach in supporting emotional well-being and mental health in education. It’s no longer news to anybody especially during these challenging times that we have experienced a rise in mental ill-health & disorder. We have to educate, upskill and resource students, teachers and senior staff alike.

The effects on Mental Health in Education:

57% of education professionals have considered leaving due to pressures on their wellbeing
50% of all mental health problems start by the age of 14
72% of all educational professionals described themselves as stressed
75% of young people with mental health problems aren't being treated
mental health in education

Why...

Since Mental health is so wide ranging it can so easily be misunderstood. It’s because it’s so misunderstood that people are often reluctant to share what’s really going which can leave them feeling alone and isolated.

It’s important to recognise that when you don’t have a way of properly understanding something it’s very difficult to talk about it confidently or with any real clarity. Especially, if you’re talking about mental health in education.

So, when everyone in the community is given the opportunity to become educated, upskilled and resourced it supports in feeling more seen, more heard and more valued.

What we do...

We raise awareness and help create a common understanding that will support everyone in having a more informed conversation about mental health in a clear and empathic way.

The Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness offers the opportunity for everyone in the community to become qualified to the same level.

When we are all on the same level we can have conversations about mental health creating more open and supportive working, personal and social environments.

Some of the benefits of the Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness:​

  • Educate, upskill and resource

    Have the confidence to talk about mental health in a more informed supportive way

  • Knowing the key mental health issues

    Such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, dementia, bipolar and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). You'll understand the majority of people who experience mental health issues can get over them or learn to live with them, especially if they get help early on.

  • Understanding of the cultural diversity within mental health issues

    By knowing some of the barriers that exist for individuals of different cultural groups accessing mental health services, you can find ways of overcoming these barriers.

  • Awareness of how stereotyping effects and shape people’s, views, opinions and beliefs.

    By challenging the stigma, myths and misconceptions linked to mental health issues, we understand that they don't define a person or their potential in life.

    You'll know what relevant professional support services are available and how to access them.
