We often hear about mental health issues, mental illness, psychological disorders, and so on, but what do we actually mean by good mental health? This course helps you to understand the signs, symptoms and possible treatments of adult mental health problems.
Managing mental health is far easier if the sufferer is positive about addressing their problems, and willing to make an effort to help themselves. Although this may not always be possible, for instance those with depression are often unable to think positively, an optimistic attitude can be very helpful.
Mental health professionals should, where possible, attempt to help a sufferer to help themselves. Often this means finding ways to alleviate severe symptoms which the individual has little or no control over, and then educating the sufferer in terms of practical techniques and strategies they may be able to use to help control symptoms.
