This qualification aims to raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health difficulties, dispel some of the myths and misconceptions frequently linked to mental health issues, and develop learner’s knowledge of the rights of those with mental health issues.
It is appropriate for a wide range of people with an interest in raising their own understanding of mental health issues. It would complement study in a range of areas, e.g. citizenship, PSHE, healthcare, social care, counselling or public services.
It may also be particularly useful for those working within the voluntary and community sector and for others whose role calls for interaction with the general public in their day-to-day work.

BTEC Level 3 in Health and Social Care
Jasmine knew she wanted to dedicate her life to helping others but wasn’t sure exactly how.
Her time studying Health and Social Care at Bishop Burton College has given her a much better understanding of the areas available and
she is now intent on working with primary school children or those suffering mental health issues.
Jasmine said: “We’ve learned about helping vulnerable people in all stages of life, including the elderly, children, people with additional needs and mental health issues. I’ve really learned a lot – much more than I thought I would. The course goes into a lot more areas than I thought it would.
“I’ve had work experience in a primary school and a care home. They have been really interesting, contrasting experiences.
“When I started the course I wanted to help people but I wasn’t sure how. This has helped me see what options there are and eventually I would like to work in a primary school or in mental health. Mental health is a really big issue and it is very interesting.”
