Description

This 12-hour SMHFA Course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide Mental Health First Aid to friends, family and co-workers. Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Recommended for all people employed in the health and community services sector.

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective for mental health conditions such as:

• Depression
• Anxiety problems
• Psychosis
• Substance use problems.
• Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
• Non-suicidal self-injury
• Panic attacks
• Traumatic events
• Severe psychotic states
• Severe effects from alcohol or other drug use
• Aggressive behaviours

This course is facilitated by Jen Keioskie and Judy Carmody from Rural Adversity Mental Health First Aid.

Jen is a social worker with over 20 years’ experience in a range of settings including mental health, sexual assault, domestic and family violence. She is passionate about the need for early intervention and prevention especially in the area of youth mental health.

Judy is a Registered Nurse with a special interest in mental health. She is passionate about increasing the awareness and understanding of mental health issues. In doing so, she hopes to help decrease the stigma so often associated with mental health, and teach people how to access appropriate assistance and support.
