Mental health, just like physical health is important and needs to be taken care of. When trying to understand Mental Health there are some key topics of interest; Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Eating disorders, Personality Disorders, Oral Health and Schizophrenia. We have created this course which will help you to understand Oral Health Awareness and ways in which you may come across it when supporting others.
