    DAY TWO: Wednesday, 17 July 2024

    Acclaimed evidence-based training and Mental Health First Aid accreditation

    This two-day course is the mental health equivalent of physical first aid.

    Multi-award-winning and internationally acclaimed, Mental Health First Aid was developed at the Centre for Mental Health Research at Australian National University and is now delivered across 20 countries around the world.

    Like physical first aid, it is designed to teach ordinary people from all backgrounds how to address minor health concerns appropriately and be an effective first responder in a crisis, before professional help arrives.

    Participants who successfully pass the post-course test will be accredited as a Mental Health First Aider for three years, before a half-day refresher is required.

    Topics include:

    • Understanding mental health, including diagnoses, prevalence and common misconceptions.
    • Symptoms and causes of depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance misuse.
    • How to provide initial support to adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis.
    • Crisis First Aid for: suicidal behaviour, panic attacks, aggressive behaviour, self-harm, acute psychosis.
    • Responding to the effects of traumatic events and drug and alcohol misuse.

    This course includes:

    • Engaging, up-to-date materials.
    • Take-home Mental Health First Aid Manual.
    • All day catering and beverages - with dietary needs catered for.
    • Certificate of attendance.
    • Optional post-course assessment and formal accreditation as a Mental Health First Aider, valid for three years.
