What is the care certificate standard 9?

The care certificate standard 9 was designed to improve learners’ awareness of mental health, dementia & learning disability.

What is mental health?

Mental health is a level of psychological well-being, or an absence of mental illness. It is the “psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment”.

What are mental health conditions?

There are a number of mental health conditions which include psychosis, depression, mood disorder and anxiety. In any year, 1 in 4 adults in Britain will experience at least one mental health need (The Office for National Statistics Psychiatric Morbidity report).

What is dementia?

Dementia is a word used to cover many different conditions that affect the brain. The Alzheimer’s Society estimate there are over 100 different conditions that fall under the dementia umbrella.

These conditions cause a decline or reduction in abilities, including:

  • Memory
  • Thinking
  • Reasoning
  • Communicating.

Someone who experiences problems with these abilities may feel confused, frustrated and frightened. A common symptom is short term memory loss; the individual finds it difficult to remember recent events or conversations. This can lead to them repeating stories or asking the same question over and over again.

What is learning disability?

A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.

People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people.

Learning disability is a result of brain development being affected before birth, during birth or in a person’s childhood. An individual with a learning disability may have difficulty understanding information, learning new skills, communicating and living independently.

Why is this care certificate standard 9 course important?

Whilst you may not be working in a role that directly supports these individuals, it is important to have awareness in 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.

What is the Skills for Health’s UK ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, LearnPac Systems works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).

This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.

This online care certificate standard 9 awareness of mental health, dementia & learning disability training course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
