Mental Health Awareness – Advent Calendar Day 1

Mental Health Awareness Qualification

Advent Calendar Day 1

Today we are opening up Advent Calendar Day 1 and we are taking a look at our newest qualification, the VTCT (iTEC) Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness. 

Mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices within our daily lives and the workplace.

Mental health can impact productivity, absenteeism and poor decision making in the workplace. Developing an awareness of mental health can facilitate appropriate support and appropriate signposting in a workplace environment.

The VTCT (ITEC) Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness is a VRQ aimed at learners aged 14+ who are either in a full-time education programme, a part-time programme at a college or with a private training provider, and wish to develop an understanding of a range of issues which may affect the mental health of people, how to identify common mental health conditions and offer support for people with mental health conditions.
