Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid Training

All About Living takes immense pride in congratulating Renee Turner, a dedicated nurse within the AAL community, on completing her Mental Health First Aid training. In our commitment to uphold the highest standards of care, we ensure that all our staff members are equipped with current First Aid training. However, we believe it’s crucial to go beyond the basics and provide our team with comprehensive knowledge and skills that address the full spectrum of health, including mental wellbeing.

Renee Turner’s journey through the Mental Health First Aid course has been enlightening. Reflecting on her experience, Renee shared, “The most valuable aspect of the training for me was learning to recognise some of the early signs of mental distress. This knowledge is something I can apply not only in my professional role as a nurse, but also in supporting my colleagues, family, and friends.” Her insights emphasise the broad application and importance of mental health education in everyday interactions and care practices.

Recent studies indicate that nearly 43% of adults will face a mental disorder at some point in their lives ( 2022). This statistic underscores the importance of mental health literacy, not only for the wellbeing of our clients but also for the safety and health of our colleagues and community. By equipping our staff with these skills, All About Living acknowledges its commitment to playing a proactive role in mental health care.

Mental Health First Aid Australia, a global leader in mental health education, has designed a range of courses that empowers individuals with the necessary tools to offer support in critical moments. This training is not just about learning to respond to emergencies; it’s about promoting an environment of understanding, recognition, and early intervention for those experiencing mental health challenges.

Renee’s achievement is a testament to All About Living’s dedication to quality training and the holistic wellbeing of our community. As we celebrate Renee’s accomplishment, we also acknowledge the continuous need for awareness and support in mental health.

For those in need of assistance or facing a crisis, it’s important to know that help is available.
