Mental Health First Aid program

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis (e.g., the person is suicidal or has had a traumatic experience). Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training courses authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and delivered by accredited MHFA Instructors across the country. Premium Health offers MHFA Courses as authored by MHFA Australia, delivered by Instructors who are currently accredited by MHFA Australia.

12-hour Standard MHFA Course

The 12-hour Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.

Australian workforce

“Almost half (45%) of Australians will suffer from legitimate mental health issues at some point in their lives”

If we find it easy to talk about work performance, why can’t we talk about mental health and staying well at work comfortably? We’re suggesting an overarching shift in the way we approach mental health in the workplace.

A key issue facing organisations which aim to develop a mentally healthy workplace is the disconnect between a leader’s and an employee’s perception of mental health initiatives – whilst 71% of leaders felt that they were committed to promoting the mental health of staff, only 37% of employees agree.

More concerning is the finding that, whilst 57% of leaders felt that they had engaged with employees to provide input into the planning, implementation and review of mental health programs in the workplace, only 25% of employees agreed!

“Sadly, only 37% of the workforce believe that their leadership values or prioritises mental health.”

Caring for staff, giving adequate support and cultivating premium health outcomes through communicative and positive environments will increase the mental health of the workforce.

Case Studies

We Don’t Compromise On Our Training

Earlier this year I performed CPR on my husband. I could not believe how quickly I remembered the timing and because I felt so confident I did not panic.
