Training FAMH

During the First Aid for Mental Health training programme, senior management, HR staff and managers identify mental health issues early. 

The course takes at least one day and consists of a theory-based session, during which an expert outlines the causes and symptoms of specific psychological problems. The importance of procedures in laying down preventive scenarios and assigning responsibilities is also discussed. This is followed by practice: through simulations and role play situations, participants discover how to react appropriately.

“This excellent workshop – one of the better ones I’ve ever attended – is a must for executives and confidential advisors. Also all the participants I spoke to afterwards were very satisfied. Worth repeating!”
