Program overview

The Mental Health First Aid Program is an evidence-based, accredited program. The program covers the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide mental health first aid in a crisis situation using a practical, evidence-based action plan.

This course focuses on the workplace and provides relevant information and tailored scenarios and exercises that will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to provide initial mental health first aid to assist colleagues, clients, and other workplace contacts who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis, and how to connect people needing assistance to existing workplace supports and external professional help.

Topics covered

  • How to spot the signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions
  • Where to direct a person to get appropriate professional help
  • How to have an effective mental health conversation in the workplace and beyond
  • What to do and say in a crisis situation
