    Standard Mental Health First Aid Course Rockhampton

    Standard Mental Health First Aid Course

    12 CPD Hours

    Mental illness is common in our society with one in five adults experiencing a mental illness in any one year. Half the people who experience mental illness will not seek treatment and delayed treatment will adversely affect the success of any clinical intervention.

    These numbers would indicate that acute hospitals, aged care services, and medical practices would have clients presenting with mental illness that require support and diagnosis – but a large number of these services do not employ mental health trained staff.

    There will also be a number of staff in the workplace who will also experience a mental illness in the next 12 months and your service will need to have the resources to identify those that may need support and ongoing assistance.

    In the workplace Mental Health First Aid works the same as physical first aid – most organisations are training a number of key personnel to become Workplace Mental Health First Aiders who can identify, support, and assist their clients and colleagues during initial diagnosis and in times of crises.

    The course curriculum is evidence-based, as informed by the Mental Health First Aid Australia Guidelines.

    Mental Health First Aid: Non-suicidal Self Injury Workshop | Hervey Bay

    Mental Health First Aid: Non-suicidal Self Harm Workshop

    4 CPD Hours

    The term ‘non-suicidal self-injury’ (NSSI) describes a behaviour where a person deliberately or purposefully hurts themselves.

    It is used to refer to self-injury that is not intended to result in death.

    When we use the term ‘self-injury’ we are specifically excluding painful or damaging behaviours that are socially accepted or ‘sanctioned’ such as tattooing, piercing or other forms of body art, and cultural practices involving injury.

    This course gives participants an opportunity to learn how to help someone who is engaging in self-injury.

    Optimising Wellness in Health Care Workers

    Wellness for clinicians matters, not just in its own right, but because it affects performance. As clinicians, we have the following expectations within our workplace. We expect that our environment will be physically and psychologically safe; we expect that we will be resourced and enabled to do an effective job; we expect that we will be supported and given the opportunity to develop our professional skills.

    Join us and our Conference Partners, Education at Sea, for the Optimising Wellness in Health Care Workers Conference aboard the Ovation of the Seas as we explore Milford Sound, Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound, Dunedin, Wellington, and Picton leaving from Sydney. 

    The complexities of healthcare organisations, our workloads, targets and other factors can challenge these expectations and erode our wellness, resulting in stress, burnout, and mental illness. This interactive Conference invites attendees to reflect on some key themes that will shift their frame on why clinician wellness matters.

    We will explain the hard science behind stress and wellness, including the biology of stress and burnout, and introduce them to a number of strategies to enhance their own wellness and performance.

    Strategies will be discussed at the level of individual wellness, team wellness and also what can be implemented at an organisational level to enhance overall performance.

    At the end of this Conference, attendees will have gained a broad and deep understanding of their personal and professional wellness. They will be equipped with the language and science to communicate their own ideas and reflections. Finally, they will have explored strategies that they may modify and implement individually or within their workplaces.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Explore the rationale for clinician wellness
    • Understand the pathophysiology of Stress, Depression and Wellness
    • Examine the Scientific Basis for Enhancing Your Wellness and Performance
    • Identify the process for translating Ideas into Action: From Individual to Organisational Wellness
