Throughout the healthcare sector, employees encounter a wide range of mental health needs and specific care requirements. As such, mental health and capacity training is vital for the promotion of the in-depth understanding of how mental health can impact on individual safety and well-being.
Learners will develop an extensive knowledge of legislation and best practice guidelines surrounding the management of mental health, from diagnosis and support to the administration of medication.
As working with individuals with mental illness can be personally challenging, our mental health and capacity online training also covers stress management, and how staff can protect their own mental health and well-being through the pressures of their job. These courses also cover the mental health awareness care certificate standard.
This training also explains the definition of mental capacity, and the steps involved in determining whether someone has capacity, and to what extent. This is particularly important when working with those who require complex care, including infants and people with barriers to communication.
