Standard Mental Health First Aid

From $279pp

Description

Around 1 in 5 Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Understanding how to talk about mental health and help someone in need are important skills. Many people feel uncomfortable and unprepared when thinking about starting a conversation with someone they are concerned about.

During a Mental Health First Aid® (MHFATM) course, participants will learn how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and learn the skills to feel confident and be able to help.

Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and make a real difference in your community.

Mental Health First Aid courses are facilitated by skilled instructors trained and licenced by MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID AUSTRALIA.

Course Overview

The 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches any adult (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to someone who is experiencing a mental health problem or crisis.

Participants will learn about the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

Certificates

Accredited Mental Health First AiderTM

Participants who satisfactorily complete the online assessment will receive a Certificate of Accreditation from Mental Health First Aid Australia, valid for three years.
