Event description

Description

Most workplaces have First Aid officers.... Does your workplace have a Mental Health First Aid officer?

This training targets frontline workers, volunteers, managers, receptionists and administration staff.

At the end of the training you will

  • Increase your ability to recognise specific disorders
  • Know how to seek mental health information
  • Know of risk factors and causes
  • Understand the self-treatment and professional help available
  • Promote recognition and appropriate help seeking behaviours

This event is a two day event running on Sept 21 & Sept 28, 2017

Your facilitator will be Christine Racar.

Christine started at the Illawarra Forum as the Training & Development Officer. Two years later she decided to accept the position of the HAPPEN Coordinator, a role to encourage people who live in social housing communities to engage in physical activity, healthy eating and smoking reduction. Now Christine has taken the role as Policy and Project Officer – Multicultural working on a variety of Multicultural initiatives.

Christine relocated from Adelaide in 2011, has over 35 years of experience in the aged and community industry. Management roles include Training, Quality, Work Health & Safety, and Injury Management.

As Chair of the South Australian OHS Aged Care Consultative Committee for over 10 years, Christine was involved in many successful grants to develop tools and resources to assist the aged and community sector. Throughout Christine’s working life one passion has endured - to consume chocolate on a daily basis. It’s good for the soul.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
