The Holistic Mental Health Training Certificate Course
This self-paced course steps through all 5 tiers of 'Maslow's Plan For Mental Health' and provides information and insights into our basic DNA thinking and how trauma can influence our adult thoughts, feelings, behaviours and addictions.
Traditional community mental health initiatives focus on managing mental and emotional illnesses after the symptoms become apparent. Whilst billions of dollars are poured into these programs every year, the mental health and well-being of the global community is continuing to deteriorate and those diagnosed are getting younger every year. Almost one in seven (13.9%) 4-17 year-olds were assessed as having mental disorders in the last 12 months.
More than half a century of experience, observation and research at The Brain Health Education Institute indicates that building immunity in early childhood increases resilience and enables people to better handle the challenges and traumas that our modern lifestyle presents. The resilience built in early childhood is essential to handling the teenage years. Economic research shows that for every dollar spent building immunity in early childhood seven dollars are saved in treatment costs later in life.
The How To Protect Your Mental Health Certificate is a level 3, self-paced training course which enables participants to understand and know how to improve the mental health of their community. The course content is a curation of information from the most respected experts in their field. An Accreditation Certificate and listing as a Holistic Mental Health Educator is available at the end of this short course.
We believe that education, with regards to building immunity and giving people the skills to manage their mental health, will reduce the incidences of teenage self harm, combat many social dysfunctions and addictive behaviours, and improve community health.
