Mental Health First Aid

Mental illness affects 45% of all Victorians in their lifetime and with an increase of 9.6% registered clients since 2016-2017 (Victoria’s Mental Health Services Annual Report 2017-2018), mental illness is a growing concern to all of us in the health care industry.  This two-day workshop is designed  to raise awareness of some common mental illnesses, and how these conditions can present as a mental health crisis. You will learn about the signs and symptoms of these illnesses and early warning signs of these mental health emergencies. You will be provided with strategies and techniques to safely assist the affected person until the crisis is resolved or professional help is available.  These first aid guidelines consider cultural diversity, as well as consideration of ways to reduce the stigma that may be attached to mental illness.
