Free Mental Health First Aid Training for Community Managers ReturnsPosted: 17 May 2022
It’s happening again in 2022!
After such a positive response to the mental health training provided to 200 Community Managers in 2021, we’re delighted to be re-opening the course to another 150 delegates. 50 of these delegates will be prioritised for our Level Up Partners.
The role of the Community Manager can seem limitless and, without clear frameworks and defined expectations, the internal and external demands can also be overwhelming. Managing online communities presents significant challenges that require a confident set of supportive peer skills.
Community Managers also need to know about the relevant professional resources available to them should they need to refer people onwards for support. Safe In Our World has developed a course, in conjunction with Mind Fitness, that will provide the knowledge, confidence and practical skills for delegates to be able to effectively set boundaries, provide non-clinical Mental Health Support and know how to take care of their own, and their community’s wellbeing.
This course assembles current best practice around Mental Health First Aid and applies these principles to the specific challenges that Community Managers have to cope with.
This course will be broken down into 4 individual sessions of 3 hours, each delivered over a 2 week period, with learning coursework between each session.
