“It looks excellent and I like the format. Very clear and comprehensive. Each section is concise giving enough information to provide the learner with an understanding of the various aspects of Dementia and how it affects both the sufferer and those caring for them. I was unaware of some of the other types of dementia and obviously some of the growing statistics are quite concerning.”

SENCO (with responsibility for Mental Health), South London

“These modules are great, with straightforward information, particularly the emphasis on stressing that these conditions can affect people of all backgrounds equally. We found the entire course really helpful to us as a large and ageing extended family. I wish I had this information when my Dad fell ill years ago, we would certainly have changed our behaviour towards him before he was eventually admitted to a Care Home. This online course has helped our family clarify the RISK FACTORS that can trigger episodes for our son’s bipolar – this is such an important factor in helping to support and manage bipolar I feel it needs really flagging up more often by professionals.”

“I found the Stress review very easy to use and very informative. It delivered clear and useful insight into how and why stress can affect your behaviour and what you may be able to do make your life less stressful.”

Deputy Head Teacher, Southend

“This is a very thorough document/training tool. Great graphics too! The quizzes are great (I passed them all) it is easy to read and understand.”

“Now retired, I lived my life, from early teens, with my Mums Bipolar. How I wish that this programme information was available to those family members who showed little if any empathy for my poor struggling mother. She’s gone now but with better knowledge we could have saved her and us from some very damaging hardship.”

Therapist, Portsmouth

“Loads of information especially for families living with a family member who has Depression. The sulky teenager who became a pain to our family was suffering internally and perhaps if they have access to this online programme they may have recognised a few things in themselves. We did get the help required eventually but I believe it may have helped earlier.”

Parent of a child with Depression, London

“I have OCD and being a fully qualified Electrician the affect throughout my working life has been a nightmare. People know I won’t leave a job without being totally convinced it’s safe for others but checking and checking and rechecking? I do wish I could have got to see this course when I was growing up. The amount of mickey taking and uncomfortable situations I suffered could have been so much less for me. Why didn’t my teachers know about this? Obviously it was considered a joke topic and it’s certainly not a joke for anyone with it.”

An Electrician with OCD, Leicester

“In relation to the module on Anxiety it provides a good introduction to providing understanding of the topic to the wider community. It is important that others appreciate the barrier to others’ lives that anxiety can cause, and it is just not a matter of “pulling yourself together” and “getting on with thing’s”. The importance of listening and then encouraging those being impacted upon to seek professional support is very helpful. As we all know in some shape or form anxiety is present in all our lives and we need to acknowledge that, but also realise that it is possible to outmanoeuvre when we adopt appropriate approaches and systems. A useful tool in everybody’s box of understanding.”

About the author

Matt Tallon, Director of Includingsport Ltd, has a history of working with Mental Health in Mainstream and Special Education, Secure Units, Care Homes and Youth and Community Centres including the elderly and the English F.A. Having co-authored a national qualification to improve mental health awareness with Industry Qualifications (IQ) and holding a UEFA ‘A’ F.A. Coach Educator Licence, he is extremely concerned about the pressures placed on young sports people as well as students in Education.

“I have spent most of my life working in the area of Inclusion. As a young teacher I was aware of the lack of expertise / knowledge shown by those in authority towards Mental Health. When I became more aware myself and strove to make others around me more aware as well, I harboured the idea of producing an introduction to the major conditions impacting on individuals and their family and friends. This programme will not solve societies general lack of respect or willingness to understand conditions but hopefully it will make more people empathise with those experiencing one or more of the 14 conditions explained. I would like to thank OCB Media for the opportunity to produce a series of informative modules that target the average person’s need for knowledge of an area that will impact us all someday”
