Mental Health First Aid Training
Standard Mental Health First Aid Course (12 hour)
Do you wish you were more knowledgeable and confident to support loved-ones, co-workers and clients with mental health challenges? Mental Health First Aid is the initial 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. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. MHFA training courses provide the skills to be able to make a real meaningful impact in people's lives
The 12-hour Standard program covers depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance misuse. The course also covers crisis first aid for suicidal thoughts and behaviours, panic attacks, severe psychotic episodes and severe effects of substance misuse. Each participant receives an evidence-based 180-page colour manual and all learning materials.
This course is delivered as a two-day program and is available to any member of the general public over the age of 18. See our Events page for the 2018 Sunshine Coast course dates. This program can be delivered anywhere in Queensland by request.
