MindEd is a free educational resource for mental health support and its “Blue Light” modules are now available in the Paramedics elearning programme. The resource aims to enhance the physical and mental wellbeing of emergency responders, who experience stress and trauma as a result of their jobs.
Blue Light modules include:
- Top Tips for Blue Light Managers and Team Leaders
- Top Tips for Blue Light Team Members
- Blue Light Services Building Staff Psychosocial Resilience and Wellbeing
Learn more about the top tips by visiting the Top Tips for Blue Light Staff page in the MindEd website.
The Blue Light Services Building Staff Psychosocial Resilience and Wellbeing resource was developed to help learners identify colleagues who are struggling, and offer advice to better support one another and manage early distress.
Blue Light modules were written by leading experts from the Royal College of Psychiatrists, in collaboration with the College of Paramedics and representatives from the Police and Fire Services.
