Our latest learning campaign, Mental health, begins on Monday 9 October 2017. The campaign will have five weekly challenges, a new learning resource on Mental health: supporting for people living with mental health conditions and detailed learning and activities hosted on the CPPE website.
Mental health conditions can affect anyone at any time, including new mothers, children, teenagers, adults and older people. The chances are that you know someone who has experienced mental ill health. This is an area which you as a pharmacy professional can really make a difference in, through increasing awareness and providing parity of esteem: valuing mental health equally with physical health.
Every GPhC registered pharmacy professional will receive our learning cards, Mental health: support those living with mental health conditions in the next couple of weeks. The third week of our campaign will focus on these cards, so you can apply new knowledge to your area of practice.
The first week of the Mental health campaign begins on Monday 9 October. The first challenge is to watch videos from individuals affected by depression, and share your own experiences as pharmacy professionals, thinking about how you can improve your understanding and practices.
Other resources include assessing your perceptions of mental health, an e-challenge dedicated to mental health and sharing resources using our mental health hub at www.cppe.ac.uk/mentalhealth.
Join our campaign and show your support through posting about the campaign on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #CPPEMH. If you complete all five challenges for CPPE's Mental health learning campaign you will receive a free 12-month membership to the College of Mental Health Pharmacy (CMHP).
Further information will be available throughout the campaign at www.cppe.ac.uk/mentalhealth
