Mental Health First-Aid training for Carers

Next date: Friday, 21 June 2024 | 09:30 AM to 04:00 PM


Across two days, Maroondah City Council is offering Maroondah Carers the opportunity to participate in Mental Health First Aid training.

Anyone can learn Mental Health First-Aid regardless of prior experience or training. Mental Health First-Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental illness, or in a mental health-related crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves.

This training is available to all Maroondah Carers.  A carer is an unpaid person who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of illness, fragility, disability, or mental health and who could not cope without their support.

This workshop will increase your knowledge of mental health first aid, including:

  • how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health
  • how to give appropriate initial help and support. 

Upon completion of the training you will receive a 3-year Mental Health First Aid Accredited Certificate from Mental Health First Aid Australia.
