Event description
Be a champion in your workplace or community - learn how to provide first aid to others experiencing a mental health crisis or challenge.

About this event

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 and in the workplace.

The instructor has an extensive background in Human Resources, largely in the aviation industry. She has almost completed a Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science online through Deakin University Melbourne, is a student member of the Australian Psychological Society and an experienced trainer, as well as currently working casually as a Mental Health Support Worker and has a Bachelor of Business.

Recent feedback from participants:

"Tracey was awesome. Very approachable and always mindful of peoples potentially sensitive experiences."

"Tracey was amazing! She conveyed information in a number of ways so that everyone could have an equal understanding of the content. Tracey was very patient with others that shared their experiences and helped to add more knowledge for the future. Tracey was also happy to share information of many questions that were thrown at her and, even more impressively, told us when she didn't know an answer; instead of making up an answer. We always got answers to the questions when she had one supported by references. Tracey was very professional and I would, and have, recommended her to a friend".

"Hands down the best training I have ever received in regards to the instructor. Tracey easily kept everyone engaged and created a very positive learning environment";

"Tracey is a good communicator and knows her subject. She presents with confidence";

"Approachable and enthusiastic"

"Tracey was really good, very warm and approachable"

"Very knowledgeable"

"Very informative, interactive day"

"Very diligent throughout, was very attentive and displayed many different methods of learning materials."

To help you feel as comfortable as possible you will be learning in a modern brand new light filled space with breakout terrace. The two day course is spread a day a week over two weeks, to assist with digesting the content and is usually appreciated by participants to accommodate other commitments they have in the week.

The facility is Quest Chermside on Playfield, located in Chermside (an easy location north of the Brisbane CBD), with free undercover parking and close to public transport. It is a convenient short walk to the large shopping and entertaining precinct of Westfield.

Unlimited nespresso coffee (latte, long black etc), morning and afternoon tea, water, notepad, pen and comprehensive manual provided.

Please arrive from 8:45am to get settled for a 9am start. I look forward to engaging in this course with you.
