WorkplaceAid: a trial on improving mental health and physical first aid skills in the workplace

Project Details

This project aims to evaluate whether MHFA training, delivered in online learning or blended learning (online plus face-to-face) modes, leads to improvements in knowledge, attitudes and self-reported supportive behaviours if someone in the participant’s social network develops a mental health problem. Analysis of pre-post data showed that the blended MHFA course was only minimally more effective than eLearning MHFA in improving knowledge and attitudes. However, course satisfaction ratings were higher from participants in the blended MHFA course, potentially leading to greater benefits in the future. Data analysis of 1-year and 2-year follow-up is ongoing.
