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.

At a Mental Health First Aid course, you will learn how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and learn the skills to feel confident and 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 to your community.

1) Thu & Fri, 30 Sep & 1 Oct 2021
9am - 5pm
2) Thu & Fri, 14 Oct & 15 Oct 2021

All sessions are held face-to-face unless Covid-19 restrictions apply at the time, in which case the course will be offered online instead.
