Event description

Description

We are pleased to offer UOW Batemans Bay students the opportunity to attend Mental Health First Aid Training. This course is provided to you by UOW Wellbeing, a SAF funded initiative, which means the course is free for those who attend. In addition to the training, all those who attend will receive a Standard MHFA Manual.

The 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches people (18 years and over) how to offer initial support to adults who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. The course curriculum is evidence-based, as informed by the MHFA Guidelines.

Developing mental health problems covered are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety problems
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use problems.

Mental health crisis situations covered are:

  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • Non-suicidal self-injury (sometimes called deliberate self-harm)
  • Panic attacks
  • Traumatic events
  • Severe effects of drug or alcohol use
  • Severe psychotic states
  • Aggressive behaviours


A maximum of 25 people may attend. This is a great anyone wanting to go into teaching, nursing or the community services sector. Note: this course is only available to UOW Batemans Bay Staff and Students.

***To ensure all those who are able and interested in attending this course are able to do so, please we ask only register if you do intend on coming. A no show fee of $30 will apply to those who do not attend without prior notice. We also ask that all cancellations of registrations be at least 48 hours prior to allow us to offer the place to another student.
