OCN London Supports Mental Health Awareness Week

The notion of ‘mental health’ often carries negative connotations more akin to ‘illness’, but in itself, it is neither positive nor negative.  It is certainly something we should cherish and develop within ourselves and support within others. 

Amid concerns about our ability to learn (see article) and talk (see article) about mental health, this Mental Health Awareness Week (8th – 14th May), OCN London would like to raise awareness of some of our ideas for short courses, developed using flexible qualifications.

The ideas for short courses are listed here, in particular:
