This 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course for adults is run over two consecutive days at our East Brisbane and Toowoomba training facilities. For groups of 6 or more, our expert trainers would be delighted to deliver the course at a location of your choosing.
Suitable for people at all levels of an organisation, you will learn how to assist adults who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or who are in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received.
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 first aid in a crisis situation.
Mental health support is one of Australia’s most rapidly growing areas of service provision, with community need outstripping services offered in many metropolitan and regional areas. This translates to workplaces which have an increasing number of employees who are directly experiencing mental health challenges, or supporting loved ones who are suffering with mental illness and/or addiction issues.
Without knowledge of the many ways which mental health challenges can present in the workplace, and the confidence to give appropriate care at critical moments in time, leaders and employees alike can inadvertently fail in their duty of care to their fellow workers. Situations can arise which quickly become difficult to manage, due to a lack of understanding of mental illness and how best to manage a mental health episode in the workplace.
This is an education course, designed to reduce stigma in the workplace about mental illness, and build skills in the provision of appropriate mental health first aid to others. It is not a therapy or support group.
Specifically learn how to recognise and respond to issues such as depression, anxiety, psychosis/mood disturbances, substance abuse, grief and loss, suicidal thinking, self-harming behaviours, aggressive behaviour, trauma, and critical workplace incidents.
