Mental Health First Aid for Crewmembers
In this speech we will discuss Emotional Support in Aviation which is geared toward crewmembers travelling and working in the unique aviation industry. In this interactive session, participants will learn to recognize emotional health level, understand the challenges of fatigue, and identify countermeasures to manage fatigue and emotional health, in both themselves and others. Discussions also include insight into various mental health problems, statistics, and the three phases of monitoring mental health. Participants will understand the importance of a self-assessment related to fatigue and learn about the likelihood score, and a fit-for-duty assessment checklist.
