First Responders (REACH)
Throughout our 2-day course, attendees will gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to help someone in need. They will learn what constitutes good mental health, the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues and the key resources and supports available.
Attendees will develop key skills and, using our Five Step REACH approach, will learn how to:
- Reach out to someone in distress
- Encourage those in need to engage
- Assess for risk
- Connect the person to appropriate professional help
- Help them access the supports needed.
By the end of the course, your newly trained Mental Health First Responders will have the confidence to reach out to colleagues in need to help prevent a problem from becoming more serious and to de-escalate a crisis situation until professional support arrives.
Our highly trained and educated team of Clinical and Counselling Psychologists, provide best in class support for your employees undertaking the REACH training programme. Using evidence based and engaging material, the course will give all attendees a basic understanding of mental health and common issues and illnesses, with a special focus on positive mental health, its importance, and how to promote it.
