The Blended Online MHFA Workplace Course has been adapted from the Standard Mental Health First Aid Course for adults.

In this informative and practical course you will learn about 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.

Developed in response to COVID-19, the new Blended Online MHFA Workplace Course includes two course components.

Course component 1 – Self-paced interactive eLearning Developing mental health problems covered:

 Depression

 Anxiety problems

 Psychosis

 Substance use problems
Mental health crises covered:

 Suicidal thoughts and behaviours

 Non-suicidal self-injury

 Panic attacks

 Traumatic events

 Severe psychotic states

 Severe effects from alcohol or other drug use

 Aggressive behaviours.

Course component 2 - Instructor-led videoconferencing (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 Workplace 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

 Develop a self-care plan to maintain good mental health.
