Workplace Mental Health First Aid
The Blended Online Workplace Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches participants how to provide initial support to another adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis, until professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems in adults, how to recognise and respond to an emerging or worsening mental health problem and the treatments and supports available.
The course is delivered in two parts:
Initially Self-paced eLearning of approximately 5-7 hours duration, this is then followed by 2 x 2.5 Hour video conferencing Instructor Led Training sessions.
Please note the eLearning must be completed prior to the video conferencing session.
Self-paced eLearning(5-7 hours), followed by 2 x 2.5 hour video conferencing sessions.
Using a practical, evidence-based action plan, course participants learn how to approach someone they are concerned about and initiate a conversation about those concerns. Participants also learn how to offer initial support and information and how to encourage the person to seek professional help or other supports.
Adults who complete the course become Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders), equipped with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to provide someone with mental health information and support when it matters most.
Standard Mental Health First Aid courses delivered in blended formats include some eLearning materials tailored to either workplaces or community settings. Participants can select their preferred setting when organising Blended Online or Blended Face-to-Face delivery of this course.
