Mental ill health affects more than 1 in 4 people at any one time 

There is a growing recognition that good mental health underpins everything we do, how we think, feel, act and behave. RSPH works to improve the understanding of the importance of mental health through our reports, qualifications and accreditation services.

Our work
  • We have developed a qualification, The level 2 Award in Understanding Mental Wellbeing, which looks at how mental wellbeing can be maintained and improved
  • Through our accreditation services we support Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England’s “Train the Trainer” programmes for those working with both the adults and young people
  • We have also accredited the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s Mental Wellbeing Impact Assessment (MWIA) training programme which supports mental wellbeing.
