I am delighted to announce that i am now a qualified Vocal Health First Aider.
What is Vocal Health First Aid?
An understanding of vocal health and the factors that can affect vocal wellbeing
Practical skills to spot the signs of a range of vocal dysfunction and imbalance
Knowledge to help someone towards recovery by:
Guiding them in self-management, or
Passing them on to further support, whether that is specialist vocal rehabilitation coaching or clinical treatment
An understanding of how to prevent vocal health issues from occurring in the workplace
Every theatre company and educational establishment in the UK is required by law to have a qualified first aider and to train their staff in safeguarding. With the rising need for Mental Health First Aid training, we suggest that on a similar level, Vocal Health First Aid is included as a routine qualification within these institutions.
