The certification in mental health first aid is an official international certification that teaches participants the best tools to offer help and communicate with people in the initial phases of mental distress. It shows the best practices of prevention, early intervention and not only: it walks you through videos, case studies, roleplays and interaction with other international students. At the end of the course, an easy test needs to be done in order to become certified.
Through the course we discover:
What is mental health, the impact of mental illness and we learn the major mental illnesses.
How to recognize the signs of people's mental distress and change in their behavior.
How to respond and approach people if they show signs of mental distress. Even at the workplace.
How to start a meaningful conversation with them and point them to professional help.
All the resources in Switzerland for mental health support.
