Registered NurseRegistered MidwifeEnrolled Nurse

 

 

Mental illness affects 45% of all Victorians in their lifetime and there has been a significant rise in the number of registered mental health clients in recent years. Across the health system people with mental health issues require support.

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 ways to reduce the stigma that may be attached to mental illness.

This course is suitable for registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives.

Please note: This course is currently scheduled to be delivered face to face at ANMF Victorian Branch, 535 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.  Face to face delivery is subject to change dependent on the COVID-safe conditions and restrictions in place on the course delivery date.
