Event description

Description

The 12-hour (2-day) 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.

Participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

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.


Times: 8:45am for registration, training strictly commences at 9am and finishes 4:00pm each day. Tea/coffee provided. Participants will be responsible for providing their own lunches.


Training is provided by an accredited Mental Health First Aid Master trainer, Teresa Barter.

Payment is required in full to confirm booking. If you'd like to pay for the training by alternate means, please contact Jordana on 8215 6014 or email training@hendercare.com.au prior to booking online.
