Mental Health First Aid Training | Bega Valley

February 4 @ 9:00 am - February 5 @ 4:00 pm

Free

First Responder Families, learn how to provide initial support to adults who may be developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. This free, 12-hour Mental Health First Aid course will be delivered face-to-face over 2 consecutive days on Friday 4th February from 9.00am to 4.00pm and Saturday 5th February from 9.00am to 4.00pm. Learn about the signs and symptoms of 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. Please note this course is not a therapy or a support group and is only suitable for people over 18 years. There are no prerequisites for this course and upon completion all participants are eligible to become Accredited Mental Health First Aiders for no additional cost.
