Level 2 Award in Understanding Mental Wellbeing

The Level 2 Award in Understanding Mental Wellbeing provides participants with a knowledge and understanding of the principles of mental wellbeing, the effect of mental wellbeing on the individual and the community, and how to improve and maintain their own mental wellbeing.

This workshop-based course offers an understanding of attitudes and beliefs about mental health and wellbeing. It will enable learners to explore models used to describe mental health and wellbeing and the strategies that may be used to promote wellbeing.

Course workshops take place in a span of four weeks.

The course is fully accredited by RSPH.

Counselling Support Sessions

As part of Be Mindful, in addition to attending three course workshops on Mental Wellbeing, you will also have access to four weekly one-on-one counselling sessions with one of our trained EDAS Wellbeing Therapists. The sessions will be held at a date and time of your choice which you will arrange personally with your EDAS therapist, face-to-face or via video call.

Counselling sessions are private and confidential. Learn more about our private counselling sessions.
