Support Your Mental Health First Aid Team Remotely

As Mental Health First Aiders are not professional counsellors or therapists, we recommend that they receive the same level of professional support, supervision, and refresher training as all others working in a safeguarding role. This would ensure the health and wellbeing of the team and that the company is demonstrating its duty of care with due diligence.

We can:

  • Train your employees remotely to take on the supervisory role
  • Provide our own in-house supervisors to work with your team, remotely
  • Deliver on-line refresher training to enable a broadening of competence and knowledge

Communication Skills Programme for Your Remote Mental Health First Aid Team

This remote training programme is designed to improve your Mental Health First Aid Team’s communications skills. With the Covid-19 outbreak, mental health support for employees who are working remotely is going to be more important than ever. Interacting with someone by phone or video is a very different skillset to having a face-to-face conversation.

We can train your team to be sensitive and listen to not only what has been said but also what has not been said.

Our remote, 3-hour interactive training programme includes the following topics:

  • Questioning without being intrusive
  • Being sensitive to confidentiality issues
  • How to be an attentive listener
  • What to say / what not to say
  • How to ask the right questions
  • Controlling your tone of voice and managing silence
  • Recognising boundaries and knowing when to refer onwards
  • The importance of supervision
  • Your own personal wellbeing

Remote Supervision for the Mental Health First Aider

A regular supervision group led by a trained supervisor / clinician should be mandatory for all Mental Health First Aiders and the frequency would be determined internally. It needs to be in place to safeguard the health and wellbeing of each Mental Health First Aider and the employee to ensure that any ethical and support issues are addressed and that the organisation is demonstrating due diligence.

Remote Refresher Training for the Mental Health First Aider

Continuing Professional Development ensures that Mental Health First Aiders maintain and improve the skills they need in order to deliver a professional service to the employees they support. Refresher training enables a broadening of competence and knowledge to ensure that the Mental Health First Aider has the capacity to practice safely, effectively and ethically within their evolving scope of practice.
