Youth Mental Health First Aid
September 11 @ 8:30 am - September 18 @ 4:30 pm$242
About 1 in 4 young Australians experience a common mental illness each year.
Evaluations consistently show that MHFA training is associated with improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in providing first aid to individuals with mental illness.
