About the event

The Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches participants how to provide initial support to another adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis, until professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems in adults, how to recognise and respond to an emerging or worsening mental health problem and the treatments and supports available.

Using a practical, evidence-based action plan, course participants learn how to approach someone they are concerned about and initiate a conversation about those concerns. Participants also learn how to offer initial support and information and how to encourage the person to seek professional help or other supports.

This course is recognised by Suicide Prevention Australia as a safe, high-quality, and effective suicide prevention program.

We LOVE this program. Practical and clear for both professionals and carers.

Delivered by our Director, Alena Farrugia, who is also National Consultant Trainer of Youth, Standard and Teen Programs at Mental Health First Aid, you're in experienced hands. Learn more about Alena here.

With so many industries encouraging accreditation, gain your PL/ CPD hours.
