Mental Health First Aid Training

Statistics show that 1 in 5 Australians will experience a Mental Health illness at some stage.  It can be difficult to spot when family member, friend or colleague is going through a challenging time and Mental Health itself is still surrounded by a lot of stigma and misinformation.

Many people do not know what to say or how to offer advice when they do become aware of a persons’ mental health concerns.  When people see someone with a physical injury , they usually know the basics of how to offer first aid or assistance.

Mental health can be invisible until a person reaches a breaking point and then it is often daunting for those around them.  Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they’re concerned about.

The Standard Mental Health First Aid course will teach you how to provide initial support to other adults who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan.

The Older Person Mental Health First Aid course will teach you how to assist a person aged 65+ who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan.

In this informative and practical course, you will learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling 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 mental health first aid in a crisis situation using a practical, evidence-based action plan.

MHFA Training Reasons

You may decide to undertake the training if you have a friend or family member who struggles with mental health concerns.

You may decide to enrol in a MHFA course for your workplace. Understanding what your colleagues and staff members may be facing will give you the skills and confidence to encourage early help seeking and in being confident in how you can deal with those around you and assist them to seek professional help if it is required.

A workplace that is mentally healthy may have better productivity and staff retention and less workplace injuries.
