1. An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge the stigma around it.

 

2. A basic knowledge of common mental health issues.

 

3. An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing.

 

4. Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing mental health issues.

 

5. An insight into how mental health can impact and what we can learn.
