Mental Health First Aid Course

This course teaches adults how to assist other adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem.

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental health first aid is the help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.   The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

What is the Standard Mental Health First Aid course?

The 3rd edition Standard Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course is based on the international MHFA Guidelines. These guidelines were developed using consensus of mental health consumers, carers and professionals from English-speaking developed countries.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment has helped millions of people worldwide gain insights about themselves and how they interact with others—and improve how they communicate, learn, and work.

The MBTI assessment makes Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type both understandable and highly practical by helping individuals identify their preferences in four areas.

The Myers-Briggs assessment is the world’s most trusted personality assessment because it is:

  • Easy to grasp, insightful, and thought provoking
  • Reliable and valid, backed by ongoing global research and development investment
  • Highly flexible in terms of administration options and applications
  • Available in 20+ languages—with new translations in the pipeline and with culturally appropriate norms for each country for which a translation is available

How It Helps

The MBTI assessment is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Team development—helps ease communication among team members, identify team strengths and weaknesses, and create action plans for improved performance
  • Leadership development—deepens leaders’ understanding of their personality type and the types of those they are leading to help them manage better, give more meaningful feedback, and improve individual and team performance
  • Conflict management—improves skills in identifying sources of conflict and intervening early to prevent underperformance, disruption, and disengagement
  • Stress management—builds resilience, increases productivity, and offers strategies for identifying and managing stress triggers
  • Career transition and planning—helps guide individuals on career choice, development, and management
