Through ALPMA you can now access Mental Health First Aid Australia’s (MHFA) blended MHFA training course that has been tailored to legal workplaces. This course is a combination of an online (eLearning) component and a 4/5-hour face-to-face training session that teaches managers, supervisors and individuals how to assist a co-worker who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Within the general community there is a high prevalence of mental illness with 1 in 5 people suffering in the workplace however, there is an even higher incidence in the legal workplace with 1 in 3 lawyers, at any one stage, suffering depression, high anxiety and stress.
Early recognition of signs and symptoms can lead to a return to usual performance quickly and can alleviate the problems worsening.
It’s important that you do, but it is equally as important that multiple people within your firm know how to assist too. MHFA Training should be encouraged across seniority, departments and genders to ensure diversity of support.
