What the course is about
We know that it is rare for somebody to present with a single issue – people are complex and present with a variety of overlapping needs. The distress caused by these unmet needs increases the risk to the mental health of all involved.
We also know that the demand on mental health services far outstrips current capacity, as well as the expertise of services supporting non-mental health needs. In other words, people providing vital support need to have a much greater knowledge and skill set to handle the complex demands they face every day.
To meet this need, CARES (Crisis Advice & Recovery – Enhanced Support) – training equips you with:
- a comprehensive toolkit of practical skills.
- the most up-to-date theoretical knowledge from the fields of mental health psychology, addictions counselling and social sciences.
- the ability to face these increasing demands with complete confidence
This means a better outcome for the people you support – as well as a boost to your morale.
