This nationally and internationally recognised
course is a practical, engaging, and stimulating workshop.
It teaches you to recognise the different stages of mental
health from the early warning signs through to acute mental
illness and how to deal with it. Many employees are able to obtain Continuing Proffessional Development points by doing this training with Fay Jackson. Fay is a Principal Master Trainer in MHFA.
It empowers people to best manage issues involved in mental
health and is particularly important in WHS, HR, diversity,
HR Management, workplace relations and customer
The course covers:
Facts and figures about mental health in Australia Depression
MHFA for depressed people
MHFA for Suicidality
Non-suicidal self injury
Symptoms of Anxiety
MHFA for anxiety and panic attacks
Post traumatic stress
How to help after a traumatic event.

Participants will be provided with a manual, tools and knowledge
which will enable them to feel in control, rather than
stumbling around in the dark, reactive and fearful. Managers
and staff will feel more confident in dealing with colleagues,
clients and members of the general public who have stress
and mental health issues.
This wonderful course designed
by Betty Kitchener and Professor Tony Jorm of Mental Health First Aid is as the name
implies first aid for mental health.
We have found this
course liberating for all who attend. It demystifies
and destigmatises mental illness. It is
a practical yet stimulating tool which will unlock many
doors leading to education, confidence, and ability to
both prevent and control mental illness.
Fay has been awarded Principal Master Trainer in this life changing certified course. Last year MHFA bestowed upon Fay the inaugural MHFA Champion Award.
