Learn to provide initial help to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is sought.

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves (Kitchener & Jorm, 2002).

Recognising and treating depression and other mental health problems in the workplace can reduce the likelihood of the condition becoming compensable. 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.

This 12 hour (two day) course has been developed for members of the public and workplaces. Participants will receive knowledge and practical skills in dealing with the following crisis situations:

  • Person feeling suicidal
  • Person having a panic attack
  • Person who has recently experienced a traumatic event
  • Person with psychosis who may appear threatening
  • Person who has overdosed

Participants will also learn how to help others with mental health problems before a crisis develops. The problems covered are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Substance abuse disorders
