The Blended Online MHFA Community Course is adapted from the Standard Mental Health First Aid Course for adults and teaches participants how to assist a friend, family member, or other members of the community who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental health first aid skills learnt in this course can be applied in any setting. Course content is tailored for community setting delivery using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs.
Developed in response to COVID-19, the new Blended Online Community Mental Health First Aid in the course includes two course components.
Course component 1 – Self-paced interactive eLearning
Developing mental health problems covered:
Substance use problems
Mental health crises covered: Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
Severe psychotic states
Severe effects from alcohol or other drug use
Course component 2 - Instructor-led video conferencing (2 x 2.5 hour sessions) This course component allows participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate practical skills in a group environment.
The video conferencing component is designed to be delivered after participants have completed the eLearning component of the Blended Online MHFA Community Course.
In this training, delivered over video conference from wherever you are, the focus is on the revision and application of knowledge and skills learnt in the eLearning component. The video conferencing includes large and small group activities, providing participants with the opportunity to:
Revise the eLearning content and the MHFA Action Plan
Clarify any points of uncertainty remaining after completion of the eLearning modules
Apply the MHFA Action Plan to relevant scenarios
Discuss and reflect 'a where to from now' in using mental health first aid skills
