Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems

Section 1: Understanding mental health

In this section, you will develop an understanding of what is meant by mental health
and mental ill health, and learn about the importance of mental health. You will find
out about factors that can lead to mental ill health. You will also look at the law
relating to mental health and mental health care.


The continuum of mental health

Before looking at the context of mental health it is essential to spend some time
exploring the basic concept of mental health – what exactly does it mean to be
‘mentally healthy? Once you understand this, it will help you understand what it
means to be ‘mentally unhealthy’ and the distress that people with mental health
problems may experience.
