Blended Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace

Mental Health in the Workplace

Support of Mental Health in the Workplace is a growing need in Australia.

The number one question asked by decision makers when approached by HR to implement a Mental Health First Aid program within an organisation is “What is Mental Health First Aid?”.  Mental Health First Aid is ‘the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves’. (MHFA manual) The next question is “Why should we put the resources into training staff in MHFA?”.

Mental Health First Aid training offers so much more than just learning about strategies to manage a distinct situation.

Mental Health First Aid in the workplace delivers:

  • Retention of key employees and corporate knowledge
  • Improved human resource management
  • Positive workplace culture
  • Reduction to the stigma of mental illness within the workplace/community
  • A more supportive work environment
  • Improved staff attendance due to early intervention

Who Should Participate in Mental Health First Aid Training

By demystifying the myths around mental illness, staff may develop new ways of communicating with other employees. Staff knowing how to respond when they notice colleagues with difficulty can decrease workplace accidents and absenteeism.

It is highly beneficial to any organisations when there are sufficient management support of the program and it is reinforced in company policy. Mental Health First Aid Training is highly recommended for:

  • Managers
  • Decision makers
  • HR Personnel
  • Team Leaders
  • First Aid Officers
  • OH&S Officers
