Become an accredited Mental Health First Aider with MHFA Australia
Do you wish you were more knowledgeable and confident to support loved-ones, clients and friends with mental health challenges? Would you like to learn in a nurturing environment with a qualified counsellor?
Mental health first aid (MHFA) is the help provided to other adults developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. MHFA is not about diagnosing or telling people what they should do to get better. It is about being confident and competent to open up the dialogue with a person and support them to access the help they might need.
Rosie Overfield from Mindpod is an experienced counsellor, educator and MHFA Instructor. She will guide you through the 12 hour Standard program, covering depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance misuse. Crises include suicidal thoughts and behaviours, panic attacks and psychotic episodes.
Held in the beautiful grounds of Glenn Vista Place, this 2-day course will include your own MHFA Kit (140-page colour manual and local mental health resources). Additionally, all participants can enjoy mindfulness sessions and a juicing demonstration with Certified Juice Therapist, Vicki Doolan.
PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST ATTEND THE FULL COURSE TO RECEIVE YOUR CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE AND BE ELIGIBLE FOR ACCREDITATION WITH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID AUSTRALIA.
