Mental Health In Construction Certificate Course

There are four main purposes of this course: Firstly, to raise awareness of common mental health issues arising within the construction industry and how these are affected by the specific demands of working in this sector.

Secondly, the course is designed to help you learn to recognise signs and predisposing factors in common mental health problems, in both yourself and those with whom you work. We will look specifically at depression, anxiety and stress, explaining clearly what these are, how they manifest and what you can do about them, as well as providing direction towards further resources, should you need information about other mental health conditions.

Thirdly, the course seeks to provide an insight into the importance of establishing a cultural shift within the construction industry, away from the stigmatisation of mental health issues and towards a culture of openness, compassion and information. We’ll offer down-to-earth guidance on the transformative benefits of speaking out and creating a working environment whereby it feels safe for people to do so.

Finally, this course is designed to equip you with your own personal mental health wellbeing toolbox, full of practical, realistic and scientifically proven strategies, to help you to support your own mental wellbeing, as well as that of those around you.

You will Learn:

  • Common issues affecting the mental health and wellbeing of workers within the construction industry
  • Signs to look out for if you’re concerned about your own mental health or that of your colleagues or employees
  • The nature of depression, anxiety and stress, as some of the most common experiences at play within the realm of mental ill health — how to recognise them, how they may affect people and what you can do, to move through the difficulties that they bring about
  • How to establish a culture of open communication in the workplace around mental health, in order to destigmatise people’s suffering, to minimise the compounding factors of isolation, fear and ‘macho’ culture that can be at play
  • How to approach talking to someone about experiencing a mental health concern
  • An array of lifestyle factors that you can work on or adapt, to support your mental health, including diet and exercise, relational health and community

Benefits of Taking this Course:

  • You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the nature of mental health problems and the ways in which they can specifically affect those working in construction
  • Awareness is the single most powerful instigator of change, and by becoming more aware, through taking this course, you’ll be empowered to help effect change in the workplace, to make the construction industry a healthier place
  • You will be given a practical approach that is designed to be immediately applicable in day-to-day scenarios
  • Knowledge regarding where to go for help, and how, and what you can do, to help support yourself or anyone who may need a helping hand towards better mental wellbeing

At age 44, I took a notion to start a new career, so I booked a Travel & Tourism online course with New Skills Academy.

I was actually pretty nervous when I looked at the modules as it’s been years since I studied!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the course flowed and how uncomplicated it was. The presentation of the course was easy to read and understand.

When I got to the final test, I was nervous, but had no need to be. It was a general test of knowledge and I passed with 70%. I feel proud!

I have started this course only 1 day ago and I cant stop studying. The information is very informative. I like the way the course gives you time to practice to get the skill right before you move onto the next subject.

I am looking forward to completing the course so I can start doing the nails properly. Highly Recommended.

Mia James

An excellent course that looks great on any CV and opens career doors. Having an industry-recognised qualification is useful in any line of work.

I have not yet completed the course but anticipate being able to use the skills learned to broadening my careers options. Would highly recommend this course. It has plenty of supplementary material for the user and is as in-depth as it is comprehensive.

Love the flexibility of the course which allows the user to study in his/her own time which is great for those in full time employment or those with family commitments. Excellent course this far.

Richard Barker

After much searching, I stumbled across this online course which sounded perfect for what I wanted and was available at a very affordable cost. This is the first time I have taken an online course, so wasn’t sure what to expect or if my money was going to be well spent.

The course is great, it was very easy to follow with simple, clear instructions and the additional use of video demonstrations that I found extremely helpful. It was handy to be able to print off all the course modules to keep for future reference and nice to receive a certificate upon completion.

Whilst I will probably never have a career as nail technician, I have gained what I wanted from this course, lots of knowledge and new confidence to do manicures/pedicures on both myself, friends & family.

Janice Waterman

Having worked in schools for years and having a recently diagnosed son this course has opened my eyes to the world of Autism. The course is both informative, easy to work through and enables the learner to gain full understanding about all aspects of Autism.

Through completing this course I have gained employment supporting a child with Autism and I have been able to implement many strategies to assist both my pupil and also my own son.

I would highly recommend this course if you would like to gain a richer understanding of Autism and would like to study online and at your own pace.

Jo Price

I've been out of the educational loop for the past five years now and was a little worried about starting a new course. All I can say is I certainly had nothing to worry about! Everything was set out so clearly for me to read and it was one of the most informative courses I've ever taken. I've soaked everything in like a sponge! You can't beat knowing you've got all the information sat waiting for you whenever you need a quick recap. Thank you New Skills Academy, my future can now begin thanks to you! I can't wait to get started!
