Occasionally, Redcrier publishes an update of popular and topical courses. The start of a new year is probably the ideal time to do this as many care providers are starting to make plans for the next twelve months.
The mental health of many people has suffered during the pandemic – this applies to care staff as well as clients. Many providers have recognised the need to update their awareness of mental health issues so that they can identify potential problems early and take appropriate action.
Our courses Understanding Mental Health, Mental Health First Aid Awareness, Mental Health Matters and Wellbeing are much in demand.
Understanding Mental Health includes units on Anxiety, Depression, Eating disorders, Bipolar and Schizophrenia. A key learning point is that changes to our mental health are not always obvious. Someone might present with more than one disorder at the same time.
The Mental Health First Aid Awareness course includes a handy five-point action plan to help you identify and deal with mental health issues effectively.
Correct use of bed rails helps to keep some clients safe by preventing them from sliding or rolling out of bed. But this equipment also comes with significant risks if they are not fitted or used correctly.

- Understand best practice in using bed rails safely
- Identify potential risks associated with bed rail use
- Understand how to reduce the risks associated with bed rail use
- Identify alternatives to bed rails
- Know how to report and record bed rail incidents
The course is available in eBox and SilverBox formats to make it easier for your staff to become confident in using bed rails safely.
