How is Care Collaborate Connect different from other mental health training?

Care Collaborate Connect normalises distress, coping, and social support. It shows you how to support people when they’re upset and how to know when to connect them with professional support.

It doesn’t medicalise unpleasant emotions or have you wondering if everyone has a mental illness when they’re upset; leave that to the professionals, if needed.

Care · Collaborate · Connect Psychological First Aid helps you create a coping environment around you where people are cared about and supported, which can prevent overwhelming distress, mental illness and suicide.

What do other people think of the training?

“Great how this course has defined that even unhealthy coping strategies are still ways of coping and the importance of highlighting this when a person feels they’re not coping.”

“I enjoyed the training. It really clarified the coping continuum for me which was a stand out bit of knowledge. Enjoyed the downloadable content to take into the world with me. Thank you!.”

“I found I’m now able to see what’s stressing me, what coping strategies I use, and am starting to work through my own issues.”
