For the individual:

This course provides information about mental health laws and resources in the UAE specifically.

Champions do not learn how to support colleagues experiencing mental health crises. Individuals need to take the 10-hour MHFA Certification Course for this purpose.

Champions should never diagnose or counsel. They are not a replacement for professional support services.
