Mental Health First Aid Courses

Mental ill health and first aid - Advice by HSE:
"Following your employers' first aid needs assessment; you might decide that it will be beneficial to have personnel trained to identify and understand symptoms and able to support someone who might be experiencing a mental health issue.

You should consider ways to manage mental ill health in your workplace which are appropriate for your business, such as providing information or training for managers and employees, employing occupational health professionals, appointing mental health trained first aiders and implementing employee support programmes.

First aid training courses covering mental health, teach delegates how to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and help them to develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone, while keeping themselves safe."

Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing

Thank You Pochat Training,
Your webinar on Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing is Great and is a very needed tool during these "pandemic times" we are living, our stress either at home or work or both has been elevating and these easy strategies in your training, Promotes Mental well-being through five basic pillars in a fun and engaging way that turn learning into action, it help us to determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices.
Either as a refresher course or your 1st Well being Training, I recommend it 100% 🙂.
Thanks again and be safe.

A trainer who puts "fun" high on her list

If you are looking a trainer who puts "fun" high on her list of priorities then Ottilia is your person. I so remember her teaching a first aid course (serious subject) and someone outsidee of the room asking what the class was laughing so much. It is a very serious subject but that does not mean we cannot have a little fun. Ottilia provides excellent training, assessment and quality assurance services . Particular skills included First Aid, health and Safety, Food Safety, Manual Handling and Fire Safety

Attending Ottilia's mental health training session was enlightening and thought provoking. Her use of discussion within the group led to much more engagement than I expected from a webinar. Ideas floated around an upbeat presentation. Look forward to joining you on many more.

Supervising First Aid for Mental Health

In July 2020 I took the Level 3 Supervising Mental Health First Aid course run by Ottilia. I've had previous experince of being trained by Ottilia so I knew the qualtiy would be good . Doing a three day course over Zoom during lockdown and I admit to being a bit nervoud before we started about whether I would be able to sustain my concentration and attendance. I needn't have worried, the course was beautifully organised wthe breaks built in and Ottilia's use of multi media, interactive tools and group discussion meant this was a very engaging and hands on programme . It was really clear that this a subject area Ottilia knows well, has real expertise in and commitment to . I couldn't have picked a better trianiner for this important area of professional development and I now feel much more secure that I could offer appropriate support and mental health first aid as and when needed
