Zevo Health’s Mental Health Champion Training course is based on the premise of providing psychological first aid. Psychological first aid is a process of offering help and support to individuals who may be suffering from mental health difficulties or who are experiencing mental health crises.
With the pandemic and the impact of quarantine and isolation on our wellbeing, our mental health and resources to cope are being pushed to their limits. Now the need for each one of us to have the resources and knowledge to care for our mental health are more apparent then ever. That’s why Zevo Health has adapted the initial course to make it suitable for anyone in the general public, not just managers, who would like to learn about mental health be able to do so. The pandemic has given way for us to reach a greater number of people through the online training and we anticipate the continued delivery of this much needed training post quarantine.
Mental Health Workplace Champion training will equip you with the knowledge of a range of mental health illnesses, enabling the recognition of common signs and symptoms either during a mental health crisis or during the development of a mental health illness. This training is not intended to replace the input of a medically trained practitioner but to encourage awareness of mental health within the workplace as well as identifying appropriate and timely interventions to support colleagues experiencing distress.
This training will cover the following topics:
- Mental Health Awareness
- Communication Framework
- Supporting During a Crisis
- Managing Mental Health during the Pandemic
