Mental Health Crisis Training
CHCCCS019 – Recognise and Respond to Crisis Situations is a one-day course that provides participants with the knowledge and skills to recognise a person who may be suffering a mental health crisis, how to safely respond, and more importantly, how to recognise a danger, and keep the situation safe.
The course outlines:
- different mental health conditions
- communication and de-escalation techniques
- how and when to call emergency services
- a directory of help available
- the important ‘Who helps the helper’.
The course comprises a combination of interactive discussion, purpose-made videos, and hands-on scenarios. The scenarios are designed to be as realistic as possible, giving participants the tools to recognise and, if necessary, de-escalate crisis situations.
There will be ongoing assessments to ensure competency.
Upon successful completion, the participant will receive a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment, and some take-home resources.
