Description

Blended Mental Health First Aid in the Pharmacy

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis until approrpriate professional treatment is recevied or until the crisis resolves as the most accessible health professionals, community pharmacists and community pharmacy staff will, at times, need to provide care to people whoa re experiencing a mental health issue.

The Blended Mental Health First Aid (BMHFA) Course is a combination of self-paced online (eLearning) course with a follow-on half day face-to-face workshop. Using case studies, videos and resources tailored to learning needs, participants will learn mental health first aid skills, which can be applied to help any adult. These include:

  • How to recognise signs and symptoms of mental health problems and crises in your customers and co-workers
  • Risk factors and appropriate evidence-based treatments and supports
  • How to respond and offer appropriate support to customers and co-workers using the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan ALGEE

In partnership with Beyond Limits Learning Clinic, the 4 hourt face-to-face course will be delivered by an accredited Mental Health First Aid instructor and discuss helping adults in mental health crises situations and/or in the early stages of mental health problems.

After completing both steps and following succesful completion of a short 20 question online assessments, participants will receive a Mental Health First Aid Certified of Accreditation valid for 3 years.

The blended course is open to all pharmacy staff (pharmacists and pharmacy assistants) and is designed for staff who are time-poor and find it challenging to attend the standard 12-hour MHFA course.
