Resilience First Aid Responder Training 

The Resilience First Aid Approach

This is a new approach to put trained mental health champions in place who actively boost the resilience and mental health in their communities and organisations. This course does so by teaching an effective conversational method called the ALL Protocol, followed by a detailed understanding of the six domains or resilience, skills and functional features of each to notice in others, as well as practical language to have meaningful conversations. 

In addition, participants are given access to ongoing tools and assessment to explore and build their own resiliency to create sustainability of the teachings, alongside resources that help facilitate conversations and build awareness.

The skills learned through RFA apply to all relationships - with family, with friends, with colleagues and all other interactions. The ALL Protocol taught through the certification is highly useful and applicable in everyday life.

It is simple, easy to remember and to build relationships through a strength based approach.

Why learn Resilience First Aid?

9 out of 10 people can benefit from increasing resilience skills to protect against mental illness.

This is why we need to take a preventative approach to mental health. Rather than waiting until people need professional treatment, we can start supporting each other to connect and build emotional wellness proactively.

Resilience First Aid (RFA) as a mental health certification  teaches skills to build resilience in self and others. Participants learn how to spot signs of low resilience, learn language to talk proactively and skills that build resilience.

RFA is a new approach to put trained champions who build resilience into communities and organisations. No prior training or qualifications are needed.

Vision is about your sense of purpose, goals and personal vision for yourself. Having clarity allows you to be decisive when facing tough choices and to maintain perspective when facing challenges.

The fight-or-flight response of the brain loves to flare up when facing conflict or hearing about a sudden change. But being able to overcome that instinctive emotional response and maintain your composure often means being able to recognise hidden opportunities and solve problems in novel ways. This is because becoming emotional prevents you from properly accessing your ability to think critically.

A high Reasoning ability means that a changing environment is welcome since it always brings hidden opportunities. By maintaining your composure and knowing what you want to achieve, change is no longer a threat.

Good health means looking after your body through what you eat, doing exercise, and getting quality sleep. A healthy body provides a strong foundation for your own resilience so you can focus on your sense of purpose and goals.

Einstein pointed out the importance of persistence for success when he said that “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer”.  We need to be willing to work hard and smart and stay with a problem if we hope to achieve something.

Few of us can achieve anything meaningful alone, so it’s crucial for us to build support networks so we can both have a safety net and also be that safety net for others. Research shows that when it comes to peace of mind, it’s not actual available support that matters, but instead it is the perception of available support that’s important.

The PR6 sets out the six domains of resilience in a holistic and peer review framework and is an advanced and efficient  psychometric questionnaire identifying resilience across the six domains of resilience.  Each participant has the opportunity to participate in the assessment and forms part of the training.
