Mental Health First Aid

Overview

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) equips individuals and organizations with the skills to identify and assist someone who is developing a mental health challenge or is experiencing a mental health crisis such as panic attacks, bouts of depression, difficulties with expatriate adjustment or the after-effects of trauma or bereavement.

Just as with physical first aid, in all situations the goal is to provide support until appropriate professional help arrives.

The central aim is to improve the Mental Health Literacy (MHL) of individuals and organizations, defined as the ability to be sensitively aware and respond with skill to people experiencing mental and emotional challenges, and facilitate appropriate action.

WHO FACILITATES THE MHFA TRAINING

The training is delivered by team members from The LightHouse Arabia. All are Clinical or Counseling Psychologists who have received their education and training in the USA, UK, Europe, South Africa and Australia. All have extensive experience in working with individuals and groups on a wide variety of mental health issues. 

We are committed to improving Mental Health Literacy (MHL) in organizations through:

  • Delivery and instruction of evidence-based information and intervention techniques.
  • Tailoring the delivery to the organization’s unique context and needs.
  • Using effective role plays and to construct workplace-specific scenarios for practice.
  •  Our advanced cultural competence and deep understanding of the realities of living and working in Dubai – with the specific challenges and opportunities this creates.
