Mental Health Awareness Seminar

Delivery Mode

Corporate Training

Duration

4 hours

Course Content

The Mental Health Awareness four-hour seminar aims to increase participant’s understanding of four areas of mental illness (depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance abuse). This, in turn, will reduce any fear or stigma that may surround mental illness, thus providing attendees with “First Aid” skills to assist persons experiencing a mental health problem prior to professional help being sought.

Mental Health Awareness also aims to provide skills and confidence to staff to equip them to be able to more effectively manage clients, as well as to implement a Mental Health First Aid Action Plan. The Mental Health Awareness course does not seek to provide participants with counselling or therapy qualifications; but will clarify the distinctive difference between the roles of practicing Mental Health First Aid versus that of the medical professional.

There will be opportunity to ask questions and clarify information in relation to mental health issues in your own workplace.
