Standard Mental Health First Aid Course for Carers

Carers NT are offering the opportunity for Carers to attend the Standard Mental Health First Aid course. Carers registered at Carers NT can attend for free, non-registered Carers can attend for a small fee of $30. (A Carer is a family member or friend who provides unpaid care and support to someone with a disability, chronic illness, mental illness, addiction or who is frail aged.)

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing the worsening of an existing mental health condition or who is in a mental health crisis (e.g., the person is suicidal or has had a traumatic experience). Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Mental Health First Aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training courses authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and delivered by accredited MHFA Instructors across the country.
