This standard aims to make you aware of the experiences and causes of mental health conditions, dementia and learning disabilities.

Whilst you may not be working in a role that directly supports these individuals, it is important to have awareness of any health or social care worker role. This is so that any signs and symptoms that you notice are passed on to other workers and that you show compassion and understanding when you experience any behaviour that you find difficult to understand or respond to.

If your organisation provides care and support for individuals with mental health conditions, dementia or learning disabilities, further specialist training should be provided. This will help you to deepen your knowledge and develop your skills and abilities to meet the needs of your role. It may include opportunities to undertake specialist qualifications. Speak to your manager for more information.
