Free short mental health online modules for anyone

Anyone is welcome to do these three short modules to help us face challenges at certain times in our lives. These modules look at what the impact of poor mental health can be on ourselves and our families and friends, what we can do to support our own mental health, that of those we care for and in our wider community, and where to find help if things start to go wrong. All in all, looking after your mental health is a priority, probably now more than ever.
