MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID COURSE DETAILS
WHAT IS THE SCHEDULE LIKE?
The Standard Mental Health First Aid course runs for 12 hours, and is usually conducted over 2 consecutive days, or once a week over two weeks. Please contact me to discuss other options for group or corporate training. Training times are usually between 9am and 4pm, with an hour lunch and two 15-minute breaks.
WHAT RESOURCES WILL I RECEIVE?
All participants will receive their own Mental Health FIrst Aid Manual, additional information and resources in a folder, and a Certificate of Completion.
HOW DO I BECOME AN ACCREDITED MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIDER?
People who complete the Mental Health First Aid training will receive a Certificate of Completion. They can then complete an online assessment to be accredited as a Mental Health First Aider. The accreditation is valid for three years. Just like appointing physical first aid officers, many organisations choose to appoint accredited Mental Health First Aiders to the role of Mental Health First Aid officer within the workplace.
