The Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace course is a combination of online (eLearning) and a half day of follow-on 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. It is for adults 18+ years of age.
Course participants must first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component that presents an overview of mental health problems and mental health crises. This portion of the course is delivered by Mental Health First Aid Australia and will need to be purchased separately at a cost of $150 plus postage of manual. You can book the eLearning component of Blended MHFA in the Workplace ESW07 here.
