Blended Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace


Blended Online Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace

Premium Health is pleased to facilitate Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses, as authored by Mental Health First Aid Australia, delivered by licensed Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructors.

The Blended MHFA Workplace Course has been adapted from the Standard Mental Health First Aid Course for adults. In this informative and practical course you will learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health (psychological safety) problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide mental health first aid in a crisis situation using a practical, evidence-based action plan.
