Boost Success with Resilience First Aid

In today’s fast-paced and challenging world, building resilience is more crucial than ever. By investing in the well-being and resilience of your employees, you’re not only cultivating a healthier workplace but also reaping significant returns on your investment.

Resilience First Aid focuses on building and promoting resilience as a means to prevent mental health issues and enhance overall well-being. It is the first program of its kind, allowing individuals and society to move from crisis response to prevention. 

FACT: We are not born with resilience, we have to develop it – but most of us are not taught how to do this, and workplaces pay the price.

Rather than waiting until people need medical treatment, Resilience First Aid teaches people the skills to support each other in connecting and building good mental health proactively and reduce the development of mental illness altogether.

Do things differently and get ahead

This is a new approach to put trained mental health champions in place who actively boost the resilience and mental health in their communities and in themselves. The course does so by teaching an effective conversational method called the ALL Protocol, followed by a detailed understanding of the six domains of resilience, skills and functional features of each to notice in others, as well as practical language tools to have meaningful conversations.

Participants also learn self-care tools to build their capacity to sustainably support both themselves and others, avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue. Through a comprehensive integration of materials, resources and training, Resilience First Aid provides a unique and neuroscience-based approach to proactively protect mental health.

Why Are We Still Waiting?

Only 1 in 10 people have resilience that’s strong enough to protect against mental illness.

When we care earlier for the mental wellbeing of those around us, we can start to shift this global trend of crisis intervention. A protective level of resilience has been shown to reduce existing symptoms of depression and anxiety, and even offset mental illness from occurring in the first place.

Give Your Employees The Tools They Need

Many people don’t realise how important mental health is until they or someone they know is suffering, but there are things we can do to spot this much earlier, or prevent it altogether

Resilience First Aid is about being proactive – it is a preventative approach to mental health. Learn how to build mental fitness through a practical strength-based approach.

RFA equips individuals with skills and strategies to develop resilience, which is the ability to bounce back from adversity, cope with stress, and adapt to challenges. Resilience First Aid training includes teaching various techniques and practices to enhance their mental and emotional resilience, such as stress management, self-care, positive thinking, problem-solving, and social support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely, many organisations are in the same boat where the introduction of new Workplace Strategies has found them now liable for not doing enough to ensure the wellbeing of their employees. Not only that, but many also feel unsure about what to do to show the organisation is putting the right programs in place to help address psychosocial risks.

Read about how RFA addresses this directly here

Absolutely. We are able to provide packages involving MHFA, RFA, Resilience Report & Assessment, as well as Resilience Workshops. Please email us at admin@mindspacetraining.com.au to chat about your goals

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and Resilience First Aid (RFA) are two distinct approaches that aim to support individuals experiencing mental health challenges, but they differ in their focus and goals.

  1. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an early-intervention program designed to teach people how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. It provides participants with the skills to offer initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis. The primary focus of MHFA is to increase mental health literacy and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. It equips individuals with the knowledge to provide initial aid and direct individuals to appropriate professional help.

  2. Resilience First Aid on the other hand, focuses on building and promoting resilience as a means to prevent mental health issues and enhance overall well-being. It aims to equip individuals with skills and strategies to develop resilience, which is the ability to bounce back from adversity, cope with stress, and adapt to challenges. Resilience First Aid training includes teaching various techniques and practices to enhance their mental and emotional resilience, such as stress management, self-care, positive thinking, problem-solving, and social support.

TLDR: Mental Health First Aid focuses on recognizing and providing initial support to individuals already experiencing mental health challenges, whereas Resilience First Aid emphasizes proactive measures to build resilience and promote overall well-being to prevent mental health issues from happening. 

Absolutely, and we encourage it! If someone is trained in both RFA and MHFA, they have knowledge and competencies from the whole spectrum of mental health up until treatment.

Resilience First Aid is built on a peer-reviewed strength-based Predictive 6 Factor Resilience Model (PR6) which proactively builds resilience skills in the community.

The PR6 is a comprehensive whole body and brain resilience model that includes a validated psychometric assessment, as well as detailed skills to proactively build resilience.

The PR6 model and skills-building approaches are used in research at various universities (including Harvard, University of San Francisco. Northwestern Uni, Boise State Uni, Northeastern Uni, Boston University, Coventry Uni, UNSW, and more). Over 500 clinicians and mental health practitioners also use the PR6 assessment and training in their practices as a validated approach.

The PR6-based Driven Resilience training program is also accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). This recognizes the program’s leading approach to bring the latest science-backed developments as a practical course that anyone can learn.

Ongoing research and peer-reviewed validation of the model and resilience training program have established the PR6 as a leading model and program with clinical effectiveness in building resilience as a proactive approach for mental health.

Resilience First Aid builds on this deep research and validation by making the PR6 model accessible through a certification training and additional resources that create lasting change and protection. This establishes Resilience First Aid with a strong science-based approach that enable meaningful assessment and potential for further validation and impact.

Anyone can register for RFA and there are no prerequisites required. People do RFA for many reasons, to help with their own resilience, to care for others they love, or to help support their employment role. 

In the workplace, managers and owners are realising the needs for something new. Increasing stress is not going away, and something needs to change. If you are a forward-thinker and are looking for something different to try to support your employees, then RFA is for you.

Contact us if you have any queries about whether is is the right course for your needs.
