CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems

In 2013, 75% of people with mental health problems in the UK admitted that they have shied away from having close personal relationships as a result of their condition. A shocking 82% said they felt embarrassed and ashamed of their problem.

These figures reinforce the fact that anyone who works around people with mental health problems needs to understand each condition and each person fully, whilst knowing how to care for them effectively.

This thought-provoking qualification will develop the learners’ understanding of what is involved when working with people with mental health problems.
