Mental health awareness and the general hospital
This is a course funded by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KCH) as part of a package of projects to improve the mental health crisis pathway within its acute trust settings.
This course is purposely designed for all KCH hospital trust staff working in both clinical and non-clinical roles who are likely to work with individuals who present with co-morbid mental and physical health conditions. Participants will be involved in a day of classroom-based theory focused and highly interactive style of learning. There will be a series of videos and cases scenarios covering a broad range of mental health conditions that commonly present in acute hospital, followed by detailed discussions and mini teaching sessions.
The course is aimed at equipping participants with the knowledge for identification of challenging co-morbid mental health presentations in the general hospital and providing practical skills for its management, including the use of existing legal frameworks.
