Mental Health First Aid (UC Students)

This event has passed Register

Event description

1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That means that every person is likely to know someone who is experiencing a mental health problem, whether that is a family member, a friend or colleague. In fact, mental illness is now said to affect every Australian either directly or indirectly.

Mental Health First Aid
will teach you how to provide initial support to someone who is experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. This course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.

UC Medical and Counselling Centre are supporting the UC community by offering Standard Mental Health First Aid (Blended) to UC Students for FREE*. Please read the below details and important information before registering.
