Live Sm Grp Webinar: Accredited Mental Health First Aid Certificate – ARCHIVED
A unique module that offers you an insight into
understanding mental health challenges and how to respond appropriately
and support those with such challenges. The course covers depression,
anxiety disorders, eating disorders, psychosis and substance abuse
problems. A range of crises are reviewed from suicidal thoughts and
behaviours, self injury, panic attacks, traumatic events, acute effects
from substance use, psychotic states to aggressive behaviours. You will
gain an understanding of the signs and symptoms of the mental health
challenges that far too many of us must cope with in society today,
whether directly or indirectly, as well as understand the support that
has been shown to be effective in research.
The module requires
approximately 4 hours of online study (Zoom) and a further two hours of
self-study to complete the assessment. Face-to-face workshops maybe
possible – Gold Coast only at present.
