It can be tough to know if someone you care about is battling with their mental health as many people still believe there is a stigma attached to it.
It can be even more tricky to know what to do if someone does open up to you about their struggles.
What you need to remember is you aren’t expected to fix someone! What you can do is respond sensitively and compassionately. You can discuss their symptoms and try to find out whether or not they have been diagnosed with an illness or if they are willing to seek support.
More than anything, someone struggling with their emotional or mental wellbeing needs a support system around them.
BODYCORE’S Level 2 Mental Health Awareness course provides Trainees with an understanding and awareness of mental health, common mental health disorders and issues, help reduce stigma and discrimination and encourage people to talk about mental health.
Furthermore, the qualification should provide Trainees with the ability to apply their knowledge of mental health through recognising and responding to the signs of mental ill health in themselves and others and be able to offer mental health first aid to people experiencing mental ill health.
