A necessity for every workplace, Mental Health First Aid training provides high quality, evidence based education on this topic. This course is conducted over two days and teaches people how to recognise and then assist others who are experiencing a mental health crisis or a mental health problem. The program has been well evaluated and found to be effective in improving mental health awareness for self and others, reducing stigma, and increasing helping behaviours.
Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help, and what sort of help research has shown to be effective. Having these skills can be of great benefit for dealing with crises that may arise in the workplace, for assisting colleagues and clients when mental health issues arise, and for developing or increasing skills in self-awareness and self-care.
This training has been very beneficial and worthwhile for people working in a range of sectors. It provides an opportunity to support employees to develop very practical and much needed skills for dealing with complex and difficult situations both within and outside of the workplace.
The Standard Mental Health First Aid Course is a two-day training and has been endorsed for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Points for a number of professions. This includes nurses, pharmacists, fitness instructors, social workers, physiotherapists, clinicians, and many others.
