Mental Health First Aid Trainng

CrewCare has partnered with Support Act and Griffith University to arrange for accredited courses in Mental Health First Aid training for CrewCare members, approved by the national Mental Health First Aid body and facilitated by Paige Gaudry from PNP Health.

The training teaches about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

This online certified training is intended for those individuals who are regularly in contact with concerned crew members and is aimed at providing them with the necessary tools and responses to ensure best practice and help those also deal with the stresses it can place on them.

The 4 day courses have been specifically designed for crew and delivered online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

20 members attended the first round in May with another 24 attending the next course later this month. A further 2 courses have now been scheduled for July.

What a great concept having trained mental health first aiders on site for the crew. And awesome to know that our industry is looking out for one and other. I already know a bit about the subject first hand so I’ll be putting my hand up for sure.
