Online Mental Health First Aid offers the same learning outcomes as the face to face training and every person who completes the course will be certified as a Mental Health First Aider.
The Online Mental Health First Aid course is a blended approach of individual learning and four instructor-led live sessions, hosted on an Online Learning Hub.
As a training course, Mental Health First Aid teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. The organisation’s courses and resources also promote self-care as vital way for people to help protect their mental health and prevent issues from getting worse.
The blended learning of the course allows for a more flexible approach and can be tailored to suit the needs of an organisation. An overview of the sessions are covered below and as long as people have the time to carry out the individual learning sessions, the live sessions can be delivered at a time and day suitable to meet your organisation’s needs.
A certificate of attendance to say they are a Mental Health First Aider
A manual to refer to whenever they need it
A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health
The minimum requirement for the live sessions is 8 per course and we can cater for up to 16 people on one course, though we would advise 12 is a more realistic number to allow for optimal learning benefit.
