Mental health work can seem so complicated… and not just for beginners. Many seasoned practitioners go on for years without a clear idea of how the different diagnoses, conditions and coping strategies fit together. It’s like trying to make sense of a 1,000 piece jigsaw without any real idea of what the overall picture is supposed to look like.
The confusion that arises can lead to workplace stress, unclear aims and difficulties in following care plans with different workers pulling in different directions whilst the service-user or client gets stuck in the middle of a whirlpool of confusion.
Continuing the jigsaw analogy, this course is intended to provide the ‘picture on the box’. It shows clearly and simply exactly how the different types of diagnosis and conditions fit together and even maintain and exacerbate each other. Delivered either online or face to face it’s available to staff teams anywhere in the world, just so long as they speak English and have a working internet connection. It’s also available for individuals to book as part of Mind the care training’s ‘open session’ programme (online only). The open session courses are delivered not to existing teams but to groups of people who may not know each other at all but who book individual places for online training as needed.
