2 DAY MENTAL HEALTH COURSE DR KOCH FOUNDATION – 26 & 27 June 2019

THE DR EDWARD KOCH FOUNDATION INVITES YOU TO A STANDARD MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (2 DAY) COURSE

Learn how to assist people (friends, staff & colleagues) experiencing mental health problems.

Mental health first aid is the help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

The Standards Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course is based on the international MHFA Guidelines. These guidelines were developed using consensus of mental health consumers, carers and professionals from English-speaking developed countries. Further information here: www.mhfa.com.au

The Mental Health First Aid Program was developed in 2001 by Betty Kitchener and Prof. Tony Jorm. It was then auspiced as a training and research program at Orygen Youth Health Research Centre, University of Melbourne from mid 2005. Since mid 2012 it has operated as a non-profit health promotion charity called Mental Health First Aid Australia.

The program has been well evaluated and found to be effective in improving mental health literacy, reducing stigma and increasing helping behaviours. These evaluations have been carried out in workplace and community settings.
Registration is essential for catering and resource purposes.
