With 20 per cent of Australians experiencing a mental health illness each year, it’s now more important than ever to be able to recognise the signs when someone is struggling and know how to respond appropriately.
The importance of physical First Aid is widely accepted and promoted within our community. Organisations are mandated to have employees that are trained and qualified in providing first aid within the workplace. However, mental health problems may still be an awkward conversation for some, or even a taboo subject, with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) not widely recognised.
With the instance of mental illness on the rise and the release of the National Blueprint for Healthy Workplaces, it is vital that you undertake training to develop the necessary skills to recognise the signs of mental health problems within your network – and I can help!
I am running one last session on the 1st and 2nd December for 2021 of my most popular course – Blended Online Mental Health First Aid for the Workplace. The course, which is entirely online is accessible from anywhere in the world focuses on mental health in the workplace.
Mental Health First Aid is a mental health program that started in Australia and is now being taught worldwide. Over 900,000 Australians have completed a MHFA course, with 4,500 courses run in Australia each year.
As an Accredited MHFA Instructor, I can equip you and your teams with the information and skills to help someone you may be concerned about.
The course is made up of 5 - 7 hours of E-Learning, completed at your own pace, and 2 x 2.5 hour zoom sessions for you and your teams.
