Youth Mental Health First Aid

Mental health problems frequently first arise in adolescence and young adulthood. Young people have poorer knowledge about mental health and how to get professional help. They are particularly likely to initially need support from adults to get appropriate help.

This specialist Youth Mental Health First Aid program has been developed and evaluated at the University of Melbourne, and is internationally recognized. The program is designed to train adults to assist young people in mental health crisis situations and/or in the early stages of mental health problems.

The course covers the following crisis situations and mental health problems.
Crisis situations covered are:
• Suicidal behaviours
• Self-harm
• Acute stress reaction
• Panic attacks
• Acute psychotic behaviour
Mental health problems covered are:
• Depression
• Anxiety disorders
• Psychosis
• Substance use disorders
• Eating disorders

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective

This 14 hour course will be delivered over 2 days: Sunday March 14 and Sunday March 21.

Cost: $255 Ausdance members $270 Non-Ausdance participants. Course costs include training manuals and Certificate.
