Volunteers in Maroondah are invited to take part in our two-day Mental Health First-Aid training.

Across two days, Wednesday 22 March and Wednesday 29 March, Council is offering free Mental Health First Aid training to Maroondah volunteers 18 years and older who are interested in gaining their Mental Health First Aid accreditation. 

The aim of the training is to build up a participant’s knowledge of mental health first aid to help them identify mental illness and further support the people they care for in their service.

The two-day workshop will provide participants with:

  • skills in how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and possible causes or risk factors
  • how to give appropriate initial help and support to someone experiencing a mental health condition.

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.
