mental health first aid

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 service.

The course covers:

•    Why MHFA?
•    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.
•    Bipolar
•    Psychosis
•    MHFA for psychosis
•    Schizophrenia
•   MHFA for drug and alcohol use.

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.
