What is the Recognising the Signs Course?

Increasing Mental Health Awareness

First Aid Pro is passionate about increasing the awareness of mental health issues in the workplace. For example, we recommend having a designated Mental Health First Aid officer. And we find that when the leaders, managers and supervisors get behind mental health training real positive cultural change takes place. That’s because it helps create an open and supportive work environment. So that’s why First Aid Pro developed Recognising The Signs – a fully flexible mental health awareness training program designed to be delivered in the workplace.

Short, Customisable Mental Health Training

Recognising The Signs is a tailor-made 2 to 4-hour short training course delivered in your workplace. During the course, you will gain a general understanding of mental health issues. That also includes the signs and symptoms and a general framework for talking to and helping a colleague suffering from a mental health problem.

“Your Training, Your Way”

First, we provide an introduction to mental health issues, and the rest of the training consists of the mental health modules that you select. Specifically, the modules are about mental health conditions such as depression, panic attacks or eating disorders. We then teach you about the signs and symptoms associated with each of these conditions along with the best ways to deal with them. Instead of a one-size-fits-all course, you can choose what’s most relevant to your organisation. As well as this, you can choose the length of the training course. It’s your course, your way. Simply tell us what you want and we’ll design the course to get the training outcomes you need.

Professional, Easy and Convenient

The courses provide an overview of common mental health issues and how they may present themselves in the work environment. To that end, all examples are based on real-life situations and reflect everyday scenarios you may face. Our experienced trainers will take care of everything and we’ll come to you with all the training materials necessary.

All participants will receive a copy of the course materials and a Statement of Completion.
