If you have always dreamed of being the person who can help to make life changing differences in someone’s life why not consider a role working with people who have mental health problems in your local community. The FdSc Community Mental Health programme offers you a chance to gain a broad understanding of the experiences and lives of those living with mental health and emotional problems. Whether you are interested in working with children, young people, adults or older adults; this programme provides you with an opportunity to learn what it takes to support someone into a full recovery and lead a meaningful existence. You will build upon your understanding of a range of mental health diagnoses; acquire a theoretical understanding of psychological development and psychological abnormalities, alongside building personal values and ethical practice requirements. You will learn how contemporary social issues impact upon someone’s mental well being and how these issues may pose lifelong challenges in an ever diverse world which may affect anyone of us at any given point. You will have an opportunity to take part in a work placement of your choice, directed by yourself in order to develop practical and communication skills within the mental health sector working with service users and other professionals directly. This foundation degree qualification will give you the necessary understanding required to implement legislation in practice and follow policy when making a real difference in many people’s lives.
