Blended MHFA in the Workplace

Designed for workplaces that require increased flexibility in the delivery of training for their staff members, the Blended Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace is a combination of online (eLearning) and a half day of follow-on face-to-face training. After completing both steps, participants are eligible to complete an online Accreditation Assessment in order to receive a Mental Health First Aider Certificate of Accreditation valid for 3 years. Accredited Mental Health First Aiders are eligible to be appointed as Mental Health First Aid Officers in the workplace.

The course teaches managers, supervisors and individuals how to assist a co-worker who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. However course participants will learn mental health first aid skills that can be applied to help any adult. Course content is tailored to the workplace setting using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs.

Course participants first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component that presents an overview of mental health problems and mental health crises. The follow-on face-to-face training allows participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate skills in a group environment, and to address mental health problems in the workplace in more depth.

The eLearning component covers

Developing mental health problems covered:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety problems
  • Psychosis

Mental health crises covered:

All MHFA Courses teach how to give mental health first aid using the MHFA Action Plan ALGEE.

The half day face-to-face session covers

The face-to-face component is designed to be delivered after participants have completed the eLearning MHFA in the Workplace.

In this face-to-face training, the focus is on the revision and application of knowledge and skills learnt in the eLearning component, providing participants with the opportunity to:

  • Examine issues pertinent to mental health problems in the workplace in more depth
  • Clarify any points of uncertainty remaining after completion of the eLearning modules
  • Apply the MHFA Action Plan to relevant workplace scenarios
  • Discuss and reflect ‘a where to from now’ in using mental health first aid skills in the workplace.
