Packages and Programs Delivered



Mental Health First Aid for the Disability Sector
Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves. Whilst one in five Australian adults experience a mental health disorder every year, research indicates that people with disability have higher rates of mental health problems than the general population. It is critical that your staff know how to respond to mental health issues that may be developing in your clients, and that they know how to assist in a mental health crisis.

Standard Mental Health First Aid
MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves. One in five Australian adults experience a mental health disorder every year and while people often know a lot about common physical health problems, there is widespread ignorance of mental health problems. This ignorance adds to stigmatising attitudes and prevents people from seeking help early and seeking the best sort of help. It also prevents people providing appropriate support to colleagues and family members, simply because they do not know how.

Youth Mental Health First Aid
Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed for adults providing services to, or caring for a young person. This course will teach participants about the mental health problems and crisis situations commonly experienced by young people, including psychosis, substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self �harm.

Blooming Well at Work
This is a 3 hour program designed to help participants assess their current stress levels and to develop strategies to cope with work related stress and anxiety. Participants leave the session with a mental health plan and techniques to drive and enhance their own mental health and wellbeing.

Mental Health First Aid for supervisors and managers
This 2 day course has been customised to enable supervisors and managers recognise and respond appropriately to staff members who are experiencing mental health problems or are in mental health crisis. Participants will learn the symptoms and functional impact of common mental health problems and reasonable accommodations that can be made in the workplace to meet both the employee and the employer's needs.
