Our Mental Health Training is not designed as a treatment for individuals experiencing a mental health condition. Nothing in this course should be viewed as a substitute for professional advice (including, without limitation, medical advice).

Always consult your own GP if you’re in any way concerned about your health. You should always promptly consult a doctor all matters relating to physical or mental health, particularly concerning any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention.

Whilst this course touches on the Equality Act 2010, it is not intended to provide Mental Health Policies and Procedures for the delegates or the Organisations they represent.
