Our fantastic First Aid trainers were on 1 News last night, showcasing our brand new Psychological First Aid course.
“Every business should be doing this”
Last week was Mental Health Awareness week, and on Friday we launched our first Psychological First Aid course. The feedback from attendees was fantastic, and 1 News wanted to get the scoop! We’re extremely proud of this new product, and we believe this will be a great addition to our workplace services.
“I guarantee that most people would walk past someone that had a mental illness, I’ve avoided it for a long time,” course trainee Bruce Gray said.
Course instructor Rick Eisenhart says “If somebody needs help, we’re going to help. So why can’t we do this for somebody that has hurt on the inside?
“We’re not going to fix the world, we’re just going to make it a warmer place”
Psychological First Aid is a 4 hour course designed to help prepare learners to respond to a person who may be experiencing emotional distress in the workplace. Mental Illness is common, with 1 in 5 New Zealanders experiencing some form of mental distress during their lifetime.
This course is designed to give a platform for discussion to help break down stigmas around psychological distress and mental health.
