What does this course cover?
This continuing professional development unit for education professionals provides a short exploration of mental health and wellbeing.
It should take you around three hours to complete. It could be a useful follow on from the shorter awareness unit if you enjoyed that and wanted to learn more. Equally, you can start with this unit and still get all the same information, plus some extra information too.
The aim of this unit is:
To share a breadth and depth of information, ideas, resources and links to support for mental health and wellbeing.
The objectives are that at the end of this unit you will be able to:
- manage your own mental health at work
- reach out to a colleague in distress
- work with others to make your workplace more mentally healthy for everyone
- support a colleague to seek help
- work supportively with a person with ongoing mental health problems
- explain how we communicate with each other
- reflect on your strengths
- reflect on your relationships with others
- communicate more effectively with colleagues, learners and their families

How distance learning works with Brightlink Learning
You will have access to a series of online materials which may be text, images, film and links to other websites, articles or further reading.
There is an induction page which is generic for all professional development units, explaining how the site works and how our range of units work. Each CPD unit has its own introduction page which will give you some more information about each individual unit.
It’s important each person achieves their own learning and assessment success. So do tell friends and colleagues if the content of this unit may be useful to them, let them know how they can develop their ideas and professional practice with us too.
You could choose to work your way through this information unit individually, or to follow up on your reading with a group discussion in your workplace or other setting. You and your colleagues can study and learn without any further input than this unit, or the online materials can be part of a face to face CPD session facilitated by Heroes Training specialist team.
Other useful information?
If anything you read during study of this unit makes you feel unhappy or worried, please speak to the Mental Health First Aider or Wellbeing Champion within your organisation if they have them. You can seek help from your GP at any time, and there are excellent services via organisations such as Mind and the Education Support Partnership. This unit of study is not a replacement for therapeutic or medical help, you must seek help if you are concerned about your own wellbeing and if you are concerned about a colleague or client you should advise them to seek help.
