Workplace Mental Health First Aid

Workplace Mental Health First Aid focuses on creating mentally healthy workplaces by providing employees with the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to step forward and have supportive conversations with people they are concerned about.

Designed for increased flexibility, our Workplace Mental Health First Aid training is delivered in a blended mode: a combination of eLearning (online) and an instructor-led session (face-to-face or online options available)

Course participants first complete the interactive, self-paced eLearning component where they will learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help and how to provide mental health first aid in a crisis situation using a practical, evidence-based action plan.

The follow-on instructor-led sessions, allow participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate knowledge and skills in a group environment, and to apply their skills to specific workplace scenarios.

These sessions will provide participants with the opportunity to:

 

    Examine issues pertinent to mental health problems in the workplace in more depth

    Clarify any points of uncertainty remaining after completion of the eLearning modules

    Apply the MHFA Action Plan to relevant workplace scenarios

    Discuss and reflect ‘a where to from now’ in using mental health first aid skills in the workplace.

At the completion of the course, all participants will have the opportunity to attain a three-year accreditation as a Mental Health First Aider with MHFA Australia.
