Who should take Mental Health First Aid?
I always say that this training is for "people who work with people". The more we are able to talk about mental health the better.
This is what I encourage you to use when considering training! If you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, then this training is for you!
Are you a leader or manager? Yes
Are you a business owner with employees? Yes
Do you have a service-based business where you work with clients/customers/patients? Yes
Are you interacting with members of the public? Yes
Do you offer a support role in your workplace? Yes
Are you a person within your workplace that people go to help/support? Yes
From my personal perspective as a Mental Health First Aid instructor, some of the key components of training are
(1) gaining a better understanding of #mentalhealth especially depression and anxiety (2) learning the signs that someone might be experiencing challenges
(3) learning practical tools for how to have a conversation with someone about how they are doing
(4) learning how to support someone in crisis.
