Mental Health First Aid SCONE
November 30, 2018 @ 9:00 am - December 1, 2018 @ 3:00 pm
What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)?
This 12-hour course teaches adults how to provide mental health first aid to friends, family and co-workers. Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. 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 is delivered over 2 days – Friday 30 November & Saturday 1 December 2018
The course is offered FREE
Both days will run from 9.00 am – 3.00 pm with a ½ hour break for lunch.
Please bring the following: a pen, notepad, water, morning tea and lunch with you for both days.
