This course is designed for workplaces who are interested in increasing the knowledge base and awareness of First Aid trained staff to administer First Aid confidently and appropriately for an employee experiencing a mental health crisis. The course offers flexibility in the delivery of training for staff members, as the course is a combination of online (eLearning) and followed by a half day of face-to-face training.
The course teaches managers, supervisors, and individuals how to assist a co-worker who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. However, course participants will learn mental health first aid skills that can be applied to help any adult.
The course content is tailored to the workplace setting using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs. Course participants will first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component that presents an overview of mental health problems and mental health crises.
