RAMHP delivers a range of training programs which may be suitable for your community as it recovers from bushfires. You may also like to contact your local RAMHP Coordinator to speak more about your specific needs.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT SKILLS (1.5hrs): Community Support Skills training develops the skills, knowledge and confidence of participants to identify and approach people they are concerned about, and provide appropriate advice to connect those people with mental health support.
WORKPLACE SUPPORT SKILLS (3hrs): Workplace Support Skills training provides participants with the skills and knowledge to deal effectively with clients experiencing stress, to minimise the negative impacts of their own experiences with clients, and to identify when it may be necessary to seek further assistance and link clients with appropriate health services.
WELLBEING AND YOU (1hr): Wellbeing and You focuses on personal wellbeing. During this session, our Coordinators will provide information and insight into wellbeing and stress, as well as strategies to find help and take care of yourself. You will leave with a new perspective on your own wellbeing and a workbook filled with tips, tricks and goals.
VOLUNTEER WELLBEING (1hr): Volunteer Wellbeing provides participants with information about and insight into mental health, wellbeing and stress. Following the session, participants will have a better understanding of how to identify stress, how to talk with volunteers about stress and strategies to help reduce stress.
MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (2 days): The Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to other adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants will learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
