Mental Health Awareness

mental health awareness course

One in every four people experience mental health problems every year. It’s clear a greater awareness of mental health issues and an understanding of how to manage our mental health is required.

In 2020 Future Step Education launched our very own online level 2 mental health training course working alongside local charities and organisations to promote the subject of mental health awareness.

We are offering free training and qualifications to organisations that wish to upskill their staff/students to become more educated on the subject. Future Step Education will be delivering free Mental Health Awareness courses (See description below) for up to 16 participants a time in local businesses, schools and community organisations. If you would like your organisation to benefit from our free training, please contact us via our contact form and a member of staff will be in touch.
