MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID:
ENGAGING SENIOR LEADERS
Each year 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness. Many people are not knowledgeable or confident to offer assistance. Physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community, however most do not cover mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they're concerned about.
The 90 minute MHFA: Engaging Senior Leaders will help leaders, decision makers and influencers understand the benefits that MHFA can offer in helping to create mentally healthy workplaces. This course contains information about how leaders can support their employees who may be experiencing a mental health problem. Information in this course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals in workplace wellbeing.
