Face to face sessions have resumed!
Learn to provide initial help to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is sought.
Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves (Kitchener & Jorm, 2002).
Recognising and treating depression and other mental health problems in the workplace can reduce the likelihood of the condition becoming compensable. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
This 12 hour (two day) course has been developed for members of the public and workplaces. Participants will receive knowledge and practical skills in dealing with the following crisis situations:
- Person feeling suicidal
- Person having a panic attack
- Person who has recently experienced a traumatic event
- Person with psychosis who may appear threatening
- Person who has overdosed
Participants will also learn how to help others with mental health problems before a crisis develops. The problems covered are:
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance abuse disorders
COVID-19 UPDATE – Blended Online Delivery:
While we have resumed the delivery of the 2 day face to face Standard Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training, we have up-skilled our MHFA Instructors to be able to deliver the newly released Blended Online Delivery of MHFA in the Workplace.
The Blended Online Delivery has two components; an eLearning component, managed by MHFA Australia, and two 2.5 hour live webinar sessions with a MHFA Instructor, managed by the training provider.
The eLearning component registration and payment is made on the MHFA website. The $50+GST fee includes your MHFA Manual. More information and enrolment in the eLearning component can be completed here on the MHFA Australia website.
We are now taking EOI for the live webinars (virtual) component of the Blended Online Delivery. There is a maximum of 10 people set by MHFA Australia for the two 2.5 hour Zoom sessions. We will schedule the Zoom sessions once we have a group of people who are seeking to complete their training.
Mental Health First Aid Australia have set the per person price of $150+GST payable at the time of booking (once the dates are confirmed). Please note that evidence of the completion of the eLearning component will be required no later than the week prior to the training dates (once confirmed).
