“Mental health is equally as important as physical health” is the view of fitness education provider Study Active’s Managing Director, James Luscombe. 

With this philosophy in mind, Study Active, who are an established provider of ELCAS funded health and fitness qualifications, are now proactively encouraging MoD personnel to study for their Level 2 Mental Health Awareness qualification – and better still, the course can be funded by Standard Learning Credits (SLC) – which all MoD personnel are entitled to.

“It’s something that we have been exploring for a long time” says James. “I like to use the term ‘total holistic wellbeing’ which is more inclusive of the importance of a healthy mind as well as body”. 

Study Active’s new qualification helps educate people on how to be aware of mental health issues. James says: “Well firstly, it’s a short course which can be studied remotely, so it can be studied in one’s own time using some fantastic interactive online learning resources, and there are no exams, just online quizzes so it’s not a heavy study 

commitment at all. It’s designed to raise awareness and to provide recognition that a successful candidate now has the tools to recognise and act upon a mental health issue.
There are no entry requirements whatsoever and the skills really are applicable to any person from any sector, it’s totally universal and certainly applicable to MoD Personnel. 

Simply ignoring mental health issues or living in denial is just not helpful, so we really encourage as many people as possible to educate themselves in what to recognise and how to act, it really can make such a difference”.
