The Mental Health Awareness Pack

Accompanying this course is a small pack that overviews the state of mental health in the UK. This covers some of the topics of the course but from a more pragmatic perspective. Please feel free to download and use the pack as you wish – the business of helping ourselves and others through mental distress is one we should all be engaged in.

You can find the pack here.
