First-aid for physical health is a concept we are familiar with. Trained volunteers are invaluable for protecting health. Often when we think of first-aid, we think of the example of CPR training. However, little attention is paid to the training of how we deal with psychological problems.
Given we live in a time of a worldwide pandemic, there is a lot of psychological distress, making it more necessary than ever to know how to (re)act. Therefore, we offer you this training in mental first-aid.
Upon successful participation and passing of necessary tests, participants will receive a certificate according to HBO registration CRKBO. If participants do not pass the tests, display skills which are deemed inadequate or engage in harmful behaviour towards people with psychological complaints during the training, the certificate will not be granted.
The trainers is conducted by Dr. Heilwine Bakker (GZ psychologist NIP), who has an extensive experience in the front lines as a rescue worker.
