MENTAL HEALTH

1st Aid Courses

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. First aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

The course is based on the international MHFA Guidelines. These guidelines were developed using consensus of mental health consumers, carers and professionals from english-speaking developed countries.

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective. The course consists of a combination of theory and practical scenarios and can be delivered 12 hours face to face or via a blended course of online self paced and then a 4 hour face to face workshop. 

Participants who complete this training are eligible to complete an online Accreditation Assessment in order to receive a Mental Health First Aider Certificate of Accreditation valid for 3 years.

Our next face to face course will be held in Tamworth on Saturday and Sunday 23/24th February 2019. This is an accredited course for registered Fitness professionals where participants can attain a 3-year accredited Mental Health First Aid Certificate and gain 10 CEC’s with Fitness Australia.
