Mental health first aid (blended learning)

This blended online MHFA course has been adapted from the standard Mental health first aid course for adults. Developed in response to COVID-19.

Physiotherapists are involved in the care of people from all walks of life. Comorbid mental health problems are common amongst people who access physiotherapy services including but not limited to those experiencing chronic pain, chronic physical illness, multiple pain areas or following a traumatic event. In Australia, approximately one in five adults will experience mental illness in any given year and physiotherapists and other health care professionals can expect to have close contact with someone experiencing a mental illness.

Lack of knowledge and stigmatising attitudes about mental illness may prevent people from seeking help or providing appropriate support because they do not know how. Stigmatised attitudes and lack of knowledge about mental health conditions are not limited to the general public and can impact on healthcare workers interactions with patients can reinforce disempowerment, loss of self-belief and a sense of shame in the person with comorbid mental health problems.

It has been suggested that training of healthcare workers in mental health literacy is essential to ensure appropriate support and referrals are made for people with mental illness. This MHFA course will improve mental health literacy of physiotherapists.

This online course runs over two evenings (7/10/2020 and 14/10/2020), with both sessions lasting 2.5hrs.

Please note: Login instructions including link details will be sent to registrants on the day of the event.
