Blended Online

MHFA Workplace

Course overview

The Blended Online 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 problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, and 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.

This course focuses on the workplace and provides relevant information and tailored scenarios and exercises that will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to provide initial mental health first aid to assist colleagues, clients, and other workplace contacts who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis, and how to connect people needing assistance to existing workplace supports and external professional help.

Accreditation & CPD Points

On completion of the course, participants are asked to complete a short online exam, open-book online of approx 15 questions. Upon passing, participants will receive their Mental Health First Aiders Certificate which is valid for another 3 year period.

After which, participants will be required to attend a full 2-day session, as 6 years would have passed from their original training date.

If participants do not wish to complete the exam they are presented with a certificate of completion with CPD points awarded regardless of exam completion.

Most professionals can claim attendance towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within their industry body. Please check with your relevant industry body or BLLC if you are unsure of allocation points.
