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
9am - 5pm


This free training opportunity has been made possible thanks to the generous support of NAB/NAB Foundation and is available to:
- District 7 CFA Lorne staff/volunteers
- Lorne Community Hospital Carers as well as their family and friends
- Lorne & surrounds residents

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.

Our core work is to develop MHFA courses, and train Instructors to deliver these courses to their communities or workplaces. MHFA courses are delivered across Australia and internationally.

MHFA courses teach members of the public how to provide initial help to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
