educAID AU was established to meet the dire need of educating and equipping communities with regards to Mental Health. This follows an important rise of Mental Health associated illnesses and their prevalence in society. Equipping communities with Mental Health First Aid ensures a unique skill set that transforms the way community members think and behave in their different spheres of life. educAID AU is also committed to growing people who are well rounded, resilient, and are able to withstand the current pressures of the world we live in. We seek to create a citizen factory of people who come out with the comprehensive skills and tools to tackle and deal with challenges of life and society. A main focus is involves increasing mental health literacy amongst CAL/D populations through education and engagement.
Up to 1 in 4 adolescents will develop a mental health problem in any year and because of this high prevalence, members of the public are likely to have contact with someone who has a mental health problem. Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem or who is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. The course teaches how to recognise the clusters of symptoms of different mental disorders and mental health crises, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person towards appropriate treatments and other supportive help. This is summarised via the ‘ALGEE’ Action Plan: Approach the person, assess and assist with any crisis; Listen and communicate non-judgmentally; Give support and information; Encourage the person to get appropriate professional help; and Encourage other supports.
