Train the Trainer (ToT) Mental Health First Aid & Wellbeing at Work

CPDs / Training Courses

A fully certified course aimed at HR Professionals, Managers and those in-charge of staff wellbeing.

This in-depth course covers some of the fundamental areas of wellbeing within an organisational context:

 

Course Overview

This course is made up of 3 modules delivered over 5 days: (1) Mental Health Training, (2) Positive Psychology Training, and (3) Professional Skills Development. These 3 modules include the following 5 units:

Day 1: Joint Mental Health Risk Assessment & First Aid

Before Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) comes Mental Health Risk Assessment (MHRA) as a prevention based approach. Understanding and mitigating the risks should be the first approach, and MHFA instances should be reduced. Understanding how to recognise the signs of Mental Health issues and to handle the situation and any resulting referral pathways will eventually become law in the UK, but at the moment the most forward thinking organisations are already investing in the training and embedding the culture and processes.

Day 2: Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE)

The concept of a PIE is one where managers embrace the concepts of mental health, but also diversity within this context. Understanding that resilience levels vary, that anxiety can be reduced and that supporting those with learning disabilities at work enhances the equality and diversity agenda significantly. Areas such as Autism, Introversion, Subject Based Anxiety, Gender Profiling, Racial Profiling are all explored within this unit

Day 3: Strengths-Based Engagement & Development

This subject falls within the area of Positive Psychology.  Engagement of Strengths is an area now considered to be fundamental to the happiness, flourishing and wellbeing levels of staff. Strengths consider the activities, tasks and job-roles that will resonate with what a person loves to do and should be doing. It is not just about what we are good at doing or have learned as a skill. This area taps into fitting the right person with the right role at a deeper level than psychometric testing. In terms of staff retention, positive culture and mental health at work, a strength-based approach is the future. You will also have an opportunity to explore your own strengths.

Day 4: Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategies

You will be trained to deliver some of the leading models within the Science of Wellbeing such as: PERMA, The Wellbeing Wheel, Inner Athletics Models, Mindfulness, and Flow – together with strategies, tactics and real-world programmes and tools that you can implement at work are all explored within this unit. You will also have an opportunity to consider your own mental health and wellbeing strategies in life and work.

Day 5: Training & Facilitation Skills

You will also have the chance to develop your training, communications, facilitation, and leadership skills during this ToT. You will be assessed on these skills at the end of the course through developing a training plan and delivering a short session segment on Mental Health First Aid & Wellbeing. This will give you the confidence and preparation needed to activate your training immediately after certification.
