The Mental Health Awareness – Level 2 Certificate (RQF) Course is designed to be studied by a broad spectrum of health care workers who would benefit from a greater understanding of Mental Health Awareness issues. It is equally suitable for the personal development of experienced health care workers or for those new to the industry.
The course includes topics son such issues as understanding mental health, stress, phobias, anxiety, eating disorders, post-natal depression and schizophrenia and will lead to a fully recognised RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework) qualification in this subject. These are nationally recognised qualifications that are superseding the old NVQ framework qualifications.
On successful completion of this course, students will receive a Level 2 RQF Certificate Qualification with 13 credits issued by Training Qualifications UK (TQUK).
You will receive access to the course materials through an online portal for a 12-month period. Students can use the portal for accessing their course materials, submitting assignments and to log tutor questions. A hard-copy book version of the course notes are also supplied.
Please Note: Due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 hard-copy versions of this course are only being dispatched twice a week so there may be slight delays to the usual delivery times.
