Session Overview:

At a time when mental health, workplace resilience and wellness is so important to join us share in this active case study session to support Learning and Development Professionals.

TriEx Gallagher Bassett (TriEx) is an experienced provider of Mental Health First Aid Training to the public and workplaces. Psychological First Aid (PFA) was developed in 2017 and has been extensively delivered across New Zealand to a variety of organisations. Psychological First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a psychological problem or in a psychological crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate treatment is received or the crisis is resolved.

The objective of the session is to increase employee knowledge in this area, reduce the stigma associated with mental health, and create a positive mental health environment.

Psychological First Aid does not teach people to be therapists. Rather, it teaches how to recognise the symptoms of psychological problems, how to provide initial help, and how to guide a person towards appropriate professional help.

Rick Eisenhart, a PFA facilitator will provide an overview of the course. In this session, Rick will share an interactive scenario to explore how the process works in a practical way.
