When it comes to working in natural resource management, physical first aid is second nature, but many of us don’t feel confident to offer mental health assistance. As part of the Our Catchments, Our Communities Regional Leadership Program, the PPWCMA is hosting mental health first aid training for volunteers and professionals working in natural resource management.
The course features an online self-guided component and two online group sessions.
As part of the self-guided component, participants will go through five online modules covering five significant mental health classifications and how to support people who may be experiencing them. This will take approximately 10 hours to complete. The group sessions will provide participants with an opportunity to review the material and map out potential responses to mental health experiences.
Two facilitators, Tamara Wilson and Joel Clapham, have been engaged to support this training.
There are current four dates available, with up to 12 places in each. You must be able to attend both sessions.
