While the taboos around mental health are slowly dissolving, there’s still a long way to go.
One of the key aims of World Mental Health month is to make mental health as normalised as physical health, so that everyone feels comfortable reaching out for help when they need it.
Mental health can affect us on a daily, weekly or more long-term basis in both our jobs and our homelife. Being aware of its existence and its importance is the first step in making it easier to manage and find support when needed.
It’s about showing our support for those affected and being more aware about our own mental health.
If you find yourself relating to any of these issues or are struggling, there are lots of readily available support services you can reach out to. Your local GP is also a great starting point if you’re not sure who to call.
The rise in mental health awareness is driving a need for thousands of new mental health practitioners and AKI is committed to helping train the next generation of professionals through our Certificate and Diploma courses delivered by our Jigsaw Training business (32423).

Additionally, more and more organisations are recognising the value of having staff who have credentials in this area. Find out more about these qualifications on this site, or just give us a call. We’d love to speak to you.
