Event description

Description

Join other members of the Arts industries for this 2 day training course and learn how to assist someone who may be 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 available or until the crisis resolves.

Mental health first aid is typically offered by someone who is not a mental health professional but rather someone in the person's social network or work environment. In the Arts industires this could include performers, production crew, arts managers and audience members.

There are many reasons why you can benefit from learning Mental Health First Aid:

  • Mental health problems are common
  • Many people are not well informed
  • Many people with mental health problems do not seek help or delay seeking help
  • There is stigma and discrimination associated with mental help problems
  • People with mental health problems may at times not have insight
  • Professional help is not always available
  • Mental Health First Aid is found to be effective

This course is the 2 day Standard Adult Mental Health First Aid Training Fourth Edition. On successful completion of the post course online assessment you can become an accredited Mental Health First Aider.

The course fee includes registration, a comprehensive Mental Health First Aid Manual and other materials, lunch and refreshments.
