Employee well-being is paramount is today’s workplace. Your staff need to know how to respond appropriately and effectively to people with mental health problems.
Mental illness is becoming increasingly common with 1 in 5 people experiencing a common mental illness in any given year. If you haven’t experienced a mental illness yourself, it is more than likely that you will have a colleague, employee, friend or family member who will develop a mental illness at some point in their lives.
Mental Health First Aid Training is for everyone. Just like physical First Aid training, it teaches people how to provide initial help until professional help is received, or until the mental health crisis resolves.
Mental Health First Aid training teaches participants how to recognise the signs of a developing mental illness, and to provide initial help to adults. It also teaches participants what to do if someone is experiencing a mental health crisis such as suicidal thoughts and behaviours, psychosis, panic attacks, traumatic events and severe psychotic states.
