Mental Health First Aid 17 August

This 4.25 hour training course gives you the skills and knowledge to recognise and respond to someone experiencing mental health concerns.  As 1 in 6 New Zealand adults experience a mental illness in their lifetime, chances are someone you know or care about may need help. How you respond may determine how quickly a friend, work colleague or loved gets the help they need.

Recognise and provide mental health first aid including how to:

  • Identify the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Get a basic understanding of the relationship between mental health and mental disorders
  • Identify mental health crises
  • Identify strategies for managing a mental health crisis safely
  • Follow the ‘Listen to your HEAD’ action plan
  • Identify help agencies and where to get immediate assistance
  • Understand debriefing strategies for self-care
