What is the Mental Health Workplace Course?
The Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace course combines an online component with a half-day of face-to-face training.
The main focus of the course is teaching people how to help colleagues who are having mental health issues. Participants should gain improved knowledge about mental health conditions as well as the confidence to support a co-worker.
The first part of the course is the online component. Since it’s online, you can do this part of the course at your own pace. It’s an overview of the sort of mental health problems that people are likely to suffer from such as depression or anxiety. Following that, there is face-to-face group training, which gives you the chance to address the workplace mental health issues raised online in more depth.
