A Highly Relevant Evidence-Based Course for Those Working in a High Stress Environment, Or For Those Responsible for Supporting Other Adults or Adolescents Facing Mental Health Difficulties.
Courses Beginning on February 26th, 2018
 
Dubai, UAE, February 18, 2018:  Global awareness of mental health issues and its impact on both self and society has never been more prevalent. In a high speed, modern world, self-care and productivity can be at risk when both individuals and organizations fail to recognize the need for managing mental and emotional challenges within themselves or their workforce.
 
With working hours increasingly becoming lost to mental health crises, the importance of recognizing and managing the signs and symptoms of such amongst colleagues and staff is greater than ever. 
 
Recognized in more than 22 countries with over 2 million people trained as accredited mental health first aiders, the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course is now offered in the UAE exclusively through The LightHouse Arabia.
 
Mental Health First Aid Training is the equivalent of physical first aid training, but for mental health. It equips individuals and organizations with the skills needed to identify and assist someone who is developing a mental health challenge or experiencing a mental health crisis such as panic attacks, bouts of depression and anxiety, thoughts of self- harm, and addictions. These issues can be a result of difficulties with expatriate adjustment, work or school-related stress, relationship difficulties, financial problems, and the after-effects of trauma or bereavement, to name a few. Just as with physical first aid, in all situations the goal is to provide support until appropriate professional help can be arranged.
 
The central aim of the course 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.
 
The training is delivered by members from The LightHouse Arabia's team of over 25 psychologists and psychiatrists, who have received their education and training in the USA, UK, Europe, South Africa and Australia, and have extensive experience working with individuals and groups across a wide range of mental health issues.
