Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. And most of us struggle with it from time to time. When those dark clouds form, you need a bit of support. Our Mental Health & Wellbeing collection is here to offer expert advice, insight, and guidance. The varied topics cover sensitive topics which are beneficial to children and adults alike. And they’re all explained in clear language, so you can get the help you need, or so you can help someone else who needs it.
With important subjects such as anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression, drug abuse advice and cyberbullying, this collection is of critical importance. Check out some of the most popular ones below in more detail, or take a look at our roadmap for all courses featured in this collection.
Depression is a terrible thing. What’s worse is that many people still don’t take it seriously. Take this course and you’ll learn to recognise the symptoms of depression and the difference between depression and sadness. But it’s not all theoretical. It’s important that you know where to go to get help and what recovery from depression looks like, too. This course will explain it all.
For anyone interested in CBT, and whether it could help them, this course outlines the basics. It looks at what CBT is, how it works, and who will benefit from it. And by taking this course, you’ll discover useful resources that explain how to access CBT if you think it would help you.
Our health is something we’re all aware of, even if we try to push it to the back of our mind when we’re doing something like, say, tucking into a Chinese. We know about the physical stuff like broken bones, heart attacks, and breathing conditions.
But did you know that mental health is just as complicated as physical health, and requires similar treatment? It’s true. And if it’s not dealt with properly then it could cause serious issues down the line. This course will guide you through everything you need to know about mental health and what to do if a problem develops.
Stress isn’t just a ‘buzzword’. It’s something that every one of us suffers from. Because stress is so common, sometimes it’s just assumed that we’ll ‘get over it’. But it’s not that simple. Stress can be extremely hard to shake off, in fact, it’s one of the six leading causes of death. We’ve GOT to take it seriously.
We’ve put together this useful course to help you spot stress in yourself and others, as well as advise on how to tackle it. If you don’t spot it and stop it, the consequences can be severe. So, it’s a good idea to pre-arm yourself with techniques to conquer stress whenever it rears its ugly head.
What do you think of when you hear the word ‘relaxation’? An island paradise far away from traffic jams and important paperwork? Maybe just sinking into your comfy sofa, slippers on, catching up with the latest ‘must-see’ box set? Whatever it is, for a lot of people, grabbing that bit of ‘me time’ can feel like a distant pipe dream.
But have you considered the good that even a little relaxation will do? It has a positive effect on your mental health, and improves your performance and productivity in every aspect of your life. So, it’s a great idea to have some quick and easy relaxation techniques that you can use to help beat the daily grind.

And when your wellbeing is peaking, both mentally and physically, there’s nothing you can’t do.
