What is this program about?
This is our latest interactive 1/2 day Workshop, co-presented by Gab Carlton from Resilyence and Rob Sams. During the Workshop we provide participants with an introduction to the key principles of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), a program that is also facilitated by Lifeline Hunter Central Coast.
What will you learn about?
MHFA teaches adults how to assist other adults who are experiencing a challenges with their mental health. The program has been well evaluated and found to be effective in improving mental health literacy, reducing stigma and increasing helping behaviours.
During the Workshop we will provide a number of practical tools that will help you and your team better understand:
- The difference between mental health and mental illness (and why it matters)
- Decision making, including Rob Sams’ Decision Tree’ model
- Resilience, including Gab Carlton’s unique ‘Resilyence’ model
- Grief – what is it? how to deal with it? why do we need to better understand it?
- Why tackle and not fix mental health in the workplace?
