Resilience First Aid Achieves Full Accreditation

RESILIENCE FIRST AID AS RECOGNISED TRAINING

Driven is proud to announce that Resilience First Aid has been awarded full accreditation by QIP and Suicide Prevention Australia, the national peak body for the suicide prevention sector.

This accreditation certifies Resilience First Aid as a best practice suicide prevention program, highlighting the years of research and dedication that has gone into the development of the program.

The accreditation process started early in 2022, and has involved a great deal of diligence to document and highlight the quality of practices as an organisation as well as the work that has gone into the development and research of Resilience First Aid. This accreditation means that:

Resilience First Aid works towards suicide prevention through a primary preventative approach. This means we proactively build mental wellness in people, teams and communities, helping people feel more connected and supported. This approach of ‘connected resilience’ means that mental health is protected, helping to circumvent the conditions that may lead to suicidal ideation.

Therefore, our dream is for everyone to achieve a protective level of resilience, finally working towards addressing the causes of mental health and suicide, rather than simply hoping to notice at the last moment. This is primary prevention – building resilience as a protective strategy to make life more worthwhile and enjoyable, thereby preventing the onset of suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

Through this preventative approach, Resilience First Aid fills a gap in the wellness continuum by teaching strength-based skills that should be learned by everyone as a broad proactive strategy.

We’re excited to be able to take this proactive approach out to more people and communities as an accredited program. If you’re interested in getting certified yourself or bringing this into your organisation, learn more about it here, or contact us to discuss your needs.
