Mental Health First Aid Training
for Individuals

Learn the skills to help people experiencing mental health issues

Mental health issues are on the rise in Australia and around the globe. Recognising the signs and symptoms early can make all the difference for someone who's struggling with poor mental health.

Why is Mental Health First Aid training important?

With one in five Australians experiencing a mental health issue each year, you’re bound to know someone who’s dealing with a mental health problem. Chances are, you want to help but you simply don’t know how. How do you start the conversation? What do you say?

A Mental Health First Aid course teaches you practical first aid skills to help a family member, friend or someone in your community who’s doing it tough mentally. We’ll teach you how to start the conversation and what to say. We’ll also help you understand what professional help is available and how to access it because early intervention can make all the difference.
