Broaden your perspective this World Mental Health Day

According to the Mental Health Foundation, nearly nine out of ten people with mental health problems say that stigma and discrimination have a negative effect on their lives.

World Mental Health Day is a time to talk, rally, and raise awareness of common mental health issues and challenges.

By learning more about the realities of different mental health conditions, you can challenge stigma, start conversations, and share educational resources that will make a real difference to how we talk and think about mental health.

This curated collection of mental health courses, covering everything from digital wellbeing and mindfulness to addiction and trauma aware schooling, will equip you with the knowledge, tools, and awareness you need to get your head around key mental health topics.

Whether it’s debunking myths on the symptoms of ADHD or finding the tools to deal with personal stress, you can share and discuss what you learn with others in real life or even in the course through comments.
