Mental Health First Aid

Lifeline WA has accredited Instructors to deliver this course by Mental Health First Aid Australia.

Around 1 in 5 Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Understanding how to talk about mental health and help someone in need are important skills. Many people feel uncomfortable and unprepared when thinking about starting a conversation with someone they are concerned about.

Learn to recognise common mental health problems, how to provide initial help to someone experiencing a mental health problem using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan, and how to respond in a crisis situation. During the course, participants have the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe environment.

  • Increases knowledge and mental health literacy

  • Increases confidence in providing mental health first aid

  • Decreases stigmatising attitudes

  • Increases the support provided to others
