The Mental Health Literacy course provides coaches with a baseline understanding on 5 of the most common mental health issues displayed in the population: depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, and addiction/substance abuse.
Coaches will learn what is outside the ethical boundaries of coaching, and new information about mental health issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, bipolar disorder.
