COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING IN MENTAL HEALTH
Now delivered completely online!
The online version of the Mental Health First Aid course is available for enrolment now.
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.
When it comes to working with people, we are 100% focussed on 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.
Why complete a Mental Health First Aid course?
Working in VET, we are in an excellent position to assist someone experiencing a Mental Health issue.
Because we work in high rapport with our clients, we are likely able to notice signs that may indicate our client is experiencing a mental health concern, and take steps to support that person.
An unaddressed Mental Health issue can have a significant effect on a person’s ability to perform at their best, and this is true for their workplace performance, too.
By taking steps early to encourage the person to get support, we are ensuring their effective and speedy recovery, and their return to their usual levels of productivity.
