Mental Health First Aid

In Australia, 1 in 5 adults experience a common mental illness in any given year. Mental Health First Aid provides people with skills they are most likely to use at one point in their lives. Many people with mental illness delay in seeking professional help. Mental Health First Aiders can:

• Encourage people to seek professional help early
• Help challenge the stigma associated with mental illness
• Make people that are suffering aware that help is available
• Make a difference to someone that is suffering on a day to day level

Recent studies have shown that training in Mental Health First Aid results in better knowledge, attitudes and providing help. This can be useful in the community, workplace and within your personal relationships.
Mental Health First Aid is another means of closing the gap between physical and mental health. Please note this class is not intended as a support or therapy group but as a practical hands on education for those who may encounter a client, colleague or family member experiencing mental health difficulties.
