This is a MHSS Specialty Course. To register to MHSS specialties you must first complete the core MHSS course - either online or via a 2-day workshop.
Are you now or have you ever been in a position where someone in your life - be it a friend, relative, child, primary partner or other - is "not themselves", and you wonder what to do about it?
This specialised topic of Mental Health Social Support, aims to equip the participant with the knowledge and skills to effectively identify and support people who are coping with depression and anxiety disorders. We assume that you have successfully completed the Mental Health Social Support course, and thus have learned the basic micro-skills of social supporting.

Thus, the aims of the course are to help you:
