Mental health seminars are presented by psychologists an counsellors with extensive corporate speaking experience.

Mental Health First Aid

Physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community. However, most first aid courses don’t cover mental health problems.

We train people in Mental Health First Aid, an evidence-based course for workplaces that teaches people the skills to help someone they’re concerned about.

In this course employees learn about:

  • The signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults
  • How to provide initial help
  • Where and how to get professional help
  • What sort of help has been shown by research to be effective
  • How to provide first aid in a crisis situation

Our course teaches participants how to help people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or people in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

The 12-hour standard Mental Health First Aid course is accredited by Mental Health First Aid Australia and is available either online or face to face.
