WHAT IS BLENDED MHFA?
Designed for increased flexibility, Mental Health First Aid can be delivered in blended mode: a combination of online (eLearning) and a half-day face-to-face workshop. (zoom)
Course participants first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component that teaches them about mental health problems, mental health crises, and skills to offer initial help to an adult developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
The follow-on face-to-face session allows participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate knowledge and skills in a group environment, and to apply their skills to specific scenarios. The face-to-face component must be done within 3 months of completing the eLearning component.
After completing both parts of the course, participants can complete an online Accreditation Assessment to become an Accredited Mental Health First Aider.
