Gave me a greater knowledge and understanding of mental health

I have previously had some experience with working in mental health. This course helped me understand and learn more in the areas I didn't have knowledge in. The resources given are very good and have lots of websites and activities that I could use. Also I found that my Assessor was really supportive and helpful. i would recommend this course for anyone who is interested in mental health or wanting to work in that area.


Very informative

I have really enjoyed completing this course, I have learned a lot of information that will be very useful within my role and career. My assigned tutor was very approachable and gave me guidance and support wherever needed. I feel the course was manageable as I could fit this type of learnning around my commitments. Thank you to HYA Training.
