Learn how to manage mental wellbeing with this free online mental health diploma course that explores human psychology. This psychology diploma course covers a range of mental health issues.

We examine the causes, symptoms and treatments of various forms to let you understand how to preserve your own mental health and even help those around you. We use real-world examples to ground your new understanding of theory in practice.
Mental health problems afflict roughly one in four adults and also affect those around them. This psychology diploma course studies the issues of stigma and discrimination and establishes the importance of promoting mental wellbeing.
The course begins by showing you how to tell people who exhibit ‘normal’ behaviour apart from those suffering mental distress. We also explain how to identify a range of neurotic and psychotic behavioural tendencies. The course then moves on to the sensitive topic of suicide. We teach you how to identify the signs of suicidal thoughts and offer preventative measures that could save a life. We also cover a range of personality disorders, phobias, neurotic behaviours and the complex questions surrounding substance abuse.
This course is not aimed just at mental health counselors and other healthcare or social work professionals, but is also helpful for anyone who has experienced mental health issues personally or from a loved one. It also suits anyone who is interested in the mind, how it works and how it breaks down.
