Mental Health First Aid Training
iTrain Safety provides various Mental Health First Aid Training and this type of training is in high demand due to the growing health concern of mental health.
Statistics show that 1 in 5 Australians will experience it at some stage.
It can be difficult to spot when family member, friend or colleague is going through a challenging time and it is still surrounded in stigma.
Many people do not know what to say or how to offer advice when they do become aware of a persons’ mental health concerns.
When people see someone with a physical injury , they usually know the basics of how to offer first aid or assistance.
Mental health can be invisible until a person reaches a breaking point and then it is often daunting for those around them.
