Mental Health First Aid

18th & 25th June, 10am-1pm

When it comes to working in natural resource management, physical first aid is second nature, but many of us don’t feel confident to offer mental health assistance.¬†

Volunteers and professionals working in natural resource management are invited to participate in this online course, which uses self-guided and group learning to outline the five significant mental health classifications and how to support people experiencing them.

The course features an online self-guided component and two online group sessions. You must be able to attend both sessions as well as complete the pre-course work.

As part of the self-guided component, participants will go through five online modules covering five significant mental health classifications and how to support people who may be experiencing them. This will take approximately 10 hours to complete. The group sessions will provide participants with an opportunity to review the material and map out potential responses to mental health experiences.

Tamara Wilson from PS Family Matters will be delivering this accredited training.

The training is free for participants and is supported by the PPWCMA and Victorian Government through the Our Catchments Our Communities Regional Leadership Program.
