Free Courses with LABM – Mental Health Awareness
The caveat that education comes at a price simply does not apply to the London Academy of Business and Management. While we do offer a range of long-form, paid courses, we also believe that certain information should be made available free of charge. With this in mind, the London Academy of Business and Management offer a range of online free courses, all taught online by a brilliant range of lecturers.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, in which more than two-thirds of adults in the UK (69% to be precise) have reported an effect on their mental health, understanding mental health is paramount. With this in mind, this month we will be highlighting a range of courses that specifically deal with mental health problems.
Around 450 million people worldwide suffer from mental health problems, and this figure is rising on a daily basis due to the after-effects of the pandemic, with levels of anxiety and depression rising rapidly. Factors such as social isolation, job and financial losses, housing insecurity and quality, loss of coping mechanisms and reduced access to mental health services have all played a part in this rise.
Taking this into account, the London Academy of Business and Management is the ideal place for you to gain insight into a range of mental health issues – placing you in a position to not only better understand said issues, but also provide you with the tools needed to assist those who may need help in your workplace.
FREE COURSES FOR MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS
