Mental illnesses and disorders affect around 20% of people. Many of us know someone personally, or who we have seen, who has a mental health problem. Although mental health problems were once considered taboo most modern societies accept mental illness as a condition which can affect anyone. Our understanding of mental illnesses has increased drastically over the past 150 years and we now have more ways of helping people to cope with their symptoms or overcome them entirely.

Studying this course will provide students with valuable insights and knowledge in mental health issues. 

  • Learn to identify common categories of psychological disorder and their causes, and how they can affect a person’s behaviour.
  • Explore the causes of abnormal behaviour from drug abuse and developmental issues to genetic and medical disorders.
  • 100 hour self paced study course
  • Gain a greater understanding of mental health issues in people for career and professional development.

This course will help the student to develop awareness of a range of common psychological disorders – their aetiology, symptoms, prognosis, and possible treatment options. Whilst the course largely mirrors classifications systems used in the DSM and ICD, the student is also encouraged to consider issues such as how do we define normality and abnormality, and when is an individual’s behaviour within the bounds of what is regarded as “normal” in society – and when is it “abnormal”.
