With 3.2 million Australians, or 1 in 5 people, suffering from a mental disorder each year, it’s likely someone you know is suffering in silence.
Whether it is at home or in the workplace, mental health can have a huge impact on a person’s physical health, relationships and career. In particular, employers must ensure they are meeting their obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act, which is increasingly turning its attention towards mental health being just as important as the physical health of an employee.
Being prepared with some basic knowledge and advice centred on best practice will give you the tools you will need to support someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
This eLearning course from the trusted mental health trainers at St John Ambulance will arm you with the skills and confidence to start the conversations that will make a difference.
With videos, quizzes and interactive learning scattered throughout the course, you can take it at your own pace one topic at a time or complete the entire course in one session. Either way, your eLearning progress will be saved as you go and you can return to the topics as many times as you need to prior to getting your final certification.
