I’m accredited to facilitate the 12 Hour Standard Mental Health first Aid course which is designed for adults helping adults in any situation. In addition to this I can provide the Blended Online Community/Workplaces courses which are delivered entirely online. This means that staff who are unable to meet face to face can participate in this vital training from anywhere around Australia. The focus of the Blended Online Workplace course is helping our colleagues and staff to recognise and support each other to get through difficult mental health problems. As a manager myself I understand the needs of balancing priorities between expectations of a Board, expectations of staff and expectations of our clients.
