Admin No Comments
Mental Health

Blue Stream Academy Ltd. are pleased to announce the release of our 5 new mental health modules.

These modules have been added to our GP, Dental, Nursing and Care Home, Hospice and Urgent Care eLearning suites and are available now.

Anxiety Awareness

Anxiety is a normal, natural response that can affect all of us in different ways and at different times. Anxiety can be a response to situations, such as stress or danger and it can bring on feelings of worry, fear or unease.

It is important for healthcare professionals to be made aware of what anxiety is, how it can affect people and how people who experience anxiety or panic attacks can be supported.

Our ‘Anxiety Awareness’ module covers topics including:

  • what anxiety is and how it affects people
  • some of the things that may cause anxiety
  • the different types of anxiety disorders
  • how anxiety disorders are diagnosed and the range of treatments that can be offered for anxiety
  • the support that can be offered to people who experience anxiety and panic attacks.

Depression Awareness

Depression affects 1 in 10 people during their lifetime. We can all feel sad and low at times and there is a common misconception that depression is the same as feeling sad or that it is not a real medical problem. It is important for healthcare professionals to understand what depression is, how it can affect people and the ways in which people who experience depression can be supported.

Our ‘Depression Awareness’ module covers topics including:

  • some of the causes and symptoms of depression
  • the specific types of depression
  • some of the symptoms of each type of depression
  • how depression can exist alongside other medical conditions or mental health problems
  • how support can be offered to people with depression as well at the different treatments available.

Eating Disorders Awareness

An eating disorder is when a person develops an unhealthy attitude towards food, which can take over their lives and make them ill. It may not always be obvious when someone is suffering with an eating disorder and so it is important that healthcare professionals understand some of the common signs and symptoms of an eating disorder and are aware of the support available. Early identification and intervention are crucial, before any harmful behaviours become rooted in daily life and serious physical or mental harm can occur.

Our ‘Eating Disorders Awareness’ module covers topics including:

  • how common eating disorders are
  • the different types of eating disorders
  • some of the signs and symptoms of eating disorders
  • what should be looked at when identifying and assessing eating disorders
  • treatments that can be offered.

Stress Awareness

Stress is the body’s reaction to excessive pressures or other demands felt from situations or life events. Being put under pressure is a part of normal everyday life, and it can have its benefits. However, if you start to feel overwhelmed by stress, then it can become a problem. It is important for healthcare professionals to understand what stress is and the possible physical, behavioural and psychological symptoms it can cause.

Our ‘Stress Awareness’ module covers topics including:

  • what stress is
  • the possible physical, behavioural and psychological symptoms of stress
  • who may suffer from stress
  • stress in the workplace
  • stress management and the treatment available to help people with stress.

Suicide Awareness

In 2018 there were 6,507 suicides registered in the UK. Thoughts of suicide can often come out of nowhere or may begin as a fleeting thought of escape and wanting to disappear. Suicidal thoughts and feelings can affect anyone and for many different reasons. It’s rare there is a single cause which makes someone want to end their life. It is important for healthcare professionals to understand some of the warning signs that someone might be suicidal to ensure they can offer the appropriate support.

Our ‘Suicide Awareness’ module covers topics including:

  • what suicide is and why some people feel suicidal
  • a few of the common misconceptions surrounding suicide
  • how openly discussing suicide may be difficult for some people
  • some of the warning signs that someone might be suicidal
  • how to offer the appropriate support
  • some of the treatments and support options.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Admin No Comments
Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 - Body Image

This week, between 13th and 19th May, is Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.

Now in its 18th year, Mental Health Awareness Week have previously focused on how mindfulness, anxiety, sleep deprivation, exercise and Stress can impact our mental health. The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Body Image’ – how we think and feel about our bodies.

Last year the Mental Health Foundation found that 30% of all adults have felt so stressed by body image and appearance that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope; that’s almost 1 in every 3 people.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age and directly impact our mental health; however there is still a lack of much-needed research and understanding around this.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, the Mental Health Foundation will be publishing the results of a UK-wide survey on body image and mental health. It will look at body image issues across a lifetime, including how it affects children and young people, adults and people in later life.

It will also seek to highlight how people can experience body image issues differently, including people of different ages, genders, ethnicities and sexualities; see below:

Body Image Research Report 2019

Below is a spoken word poem written and performed by Priscila Hernandez for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.

You can show your support by on social media by posting a picture of a time or a place when you felt comfortable in your own skin – this could be now, five years ago or at the age of five. It can be a photo of yourself or something else that reminds you of the moment.

Use the hashtags #BeBodyKind and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek; tag @mentalhealthfoundation on Instagram and Facebook or @mentalhealth on Twitter.
