Mental Health First Aid
• Comprehensive Training in Mental Health
• Help With Workplace Mental Health Concerns
• Evidence Based Procedures
With 1 in 5 Australians experiencing a mental illness of some kind every year, statistically, we are sure to be working with one or more clients or colleagues who are experiencing a mental health issue.
In our role as coaches, we are 100% focussed on our client’s goals and helping them achieve as much as they can. We want them to be successful and in a workplace setting, we want them to be engaged and productive.
Equipping ourselves with Mental Health First Aid skills is essential. These skills allow us to open up difficult conversations where we feel someone may be experiencing a mental health issue, and give us a proven approach to do so.
The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course teaches you simple, practical first aid skills for helping a family member, friend, co-worker or other person who is experiencing mental health problems.
MHFA courses will teach you how to listen and respond to someone with a mental health problem, even if they are experiencing a crisis. You’ll learn how to help someone to access the support they might need for the successful management of symptoms as part of their recovery journey.
What’s more, you’ll be able to actively reduce stigma in your community and your workplace, by responding appropriately to myths and misunderstandings about mental illness.
