Anxiety and depression are the cause of six million lost working days each year in Australia, resulting in 12 million days worth of reduced productivity, according to the Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA).

Furthermore, one in four Australians will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives and most people do not know how to approach someone they deem in mental distress and would rather walk away than doing the “wrong thing” or just simply fear to approach this person as they might think he/she is a weirdo or they might even become aggressive.

It is time to take the stigma off mental health and treat it equally to any illness we respond to. Just because we cannot physically see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Learning Mental Health First Aid is about potentially saving lives, just like physical First Aid. And just like you would know how to deal with a sprained ankle, because you remember what you learned in your First Aid Training, you can learn how to support someone with a mental illness. Learning MHFA isn’t difficult and it empowers you to know that and how you can help.

The course is run over 12 hours and can be split into 2 consecutive days, 1 day a week over 2 weeks or 4 3-hour-sessions over 4 days. In order to become and acrredited… Mental Health First Aider all 12 hours of training must be attended.

As an accredited Mental Health First Aid trainer I facilitate Mental Health First Aid trainings in house for companies, NGOs, sports clubs as well as for people in the community.
