Mental Health First Aid
• Comprehensive training in mental health
• Help with workplace mental health concerns
• Evidence based procedures
Without a doubt mental health in workplace is an important topic. In fact, 1 in 5 Australians experience a mental illness of some kind every year. For this reason, we are likely to be working with clients or colleagues who are experiencing a mental health issue.
As coaches, we are 100% focussed on our client’s goals. Clearly, helping them achieve as much as they can. We want them to be successful and in a workplace setting. Furthermore, we want them to be engaged and productive.
For this reason, equipping ourselves with Mental Health First Aid skills is essential. These skills allow us to open up a valuable conversation when we feel someone may be experiencing a mental health issue. Importantly, we have proven approach to do so.
The program is accredited by the ICF as a Continuing Coach Education (CCE) Program.
Coaches will earn 24 CCEU’s when completing this program.
Comprising: 20 Core Competency and 4 Resource Development units.
Keep up the good work! The training exceeded my expectations. I consider the content as essential knowledge and I will be recommending Mental Health First Aid training at every opportunity
Nick was an excellent presenter and facilitator for this course. He was very knowledgeable, professional and engaging even in the challenging circumstances of online learning.
Nick was a great tutor, very open with sharing his knowledge. Always guiding rather than straight instruction, used terminology and scenarios I would use in real life which made the training feel really relatable
This course was very informative and Nick made it inclusive and created an environment that was easy to learn and share thoughts.
I loved Nick’s facilitation style – he is very knowledgable, able to share relevant and practical examples, and although a serious topic, made the session fun and very engaging
Everyone’s lives are touched by mental illness, personally and professionally. Therefore it’s important we know how to support each other. I got a lot from this course and i am glad i took the time to complete it.
Nick was a true professional with a relaxed approach and provided us with great real life examples
I realised by doing this course that mental health first aid is as important as; if not more important than physical first aid. Mental health can be so readily overlooked and yet it is critical to a person’s whole being
Nick was really informative and this helped in my understanding with how to deal with different circumstances and how to approach them
I enjoyed the structure of this program … completing the online units first and then follow up with 2 x webinars definitely suited my learning style. Nick was engaging, respectful of all participants needs and so inforamtive with the in-depth level of skill and knowledge he possesses.
Nick was an amazing facilitator! Super engaging and empathetic
This program has given me the tools to know how to have a conversation with an individual who might be suffering
Thank you for the opportunity. It has been extremely helpful and will make a difference in my approach to family, friends and clients
Nick was fabulous. He held a safe space, was engaging, kept his energy high and was personable. He shared personal experiences which made him relatable, vulberable, authentic. I also found Nick to be very kind
The impact of this course will be amazing!
Nick was clear, and understood the content. He was validating and is clearly passionate about this subject
The training has provided me with the skills to approach, assist, listen but at the same time maintain my on safety. I have often wanted to approach and assist but didn’t because I didn’t feel qualified to assist and concerned I could make the situation worse.
This course has helped me understand people living with mental illness and has deepened my empathy. It has also helped me identify my own bad habits and look after my own mental health just i would with someone else
As so many people turn to family or friends before professional help, it is important we are trained to give the right help and guidance. Others never reach out for help so it is important to approach those we notice may be going through something.
Being able to assist someone with mental health problems can make an enormous difference not only to that person but those around them. Sentiment towards mental health is changing but there is still a long way to go. Widespread awareness of what mental health issues exist and how they can be tackled is critical.
This course has already helped me to be more confident to have those discussions and understand the different types of mental illness
I really enjoyed the program, the delivery style, the pace and level of interaction given it’s an online zoom program was fabulous!
There are a lot of misconceptions about mental health and this course helped with providing a better understanding of what can be done to help
Nick was very engaging and created a safe space for the course. I tremendously enjoyed it!
I found MHFA to be really informative in better understanding the experiences of someone on their mental health journey. The entire course has also deepened my ability in my personal life to support friends and family through their own journeys
Nick was brilliant – I was impressed with his knowledge of the content and I felt comfortable and relaxed. Nick maintained a positive and friendly approach and atmosphere which in these difficult times was quite remarkable.
The course made me more aware of how to deal with that initial phase of linking someone to support by providing a structure (ALGEE). Nick was really good at fostering discussion and giving examples really well to the main take-away points.
This course has given me a lot of knowledge that I did not have. It was clearly and comprehensively presented for the purpose of helping within a first aid capacity. But also the knowledge is useful to any human! Nick is very authentic, caring and truthful. He was respectful, engaging and fun.
Very practical course addressing mental health which provides valuable approach and resource to support someone with a mental illness. Useful in everyday life- just like a first aid course!
The course has demystified mental illness for me, and made me feel much more confident in being able to identify and potentially help someone experiencing mental health difficulties with compassion, understanding and above all some practical tools/knowledge. Nick was very engaging over Zoom, and I found him very easy to listen to, and relate to the information he was sharing.
This course has given me an important skill and working model (ALGEE) to round off my professional coaching services. Nick is a real professional. He creates a safe space and he listens well. When necessary, he was able to expand on topics and questions from attendees, both group webinars were excellent.
I really feel like I have learnt skills to aid someone with a mental health issue, wether that is day to day or during a crisis. These are lifelong skills that will hopefully help me help any community that I am a member of, as a parent, family member, friend, employee, employer, sportsperson.
The course was very practical and confirmed that the approach I use was correct in speaking to friends and colleagues that may have some mental health concerns. Nick made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable.
