• Nurse Manager, Vicki Bellinge, is running a Youth Mental Health First Aid course over the weekend of 23 and 24 March for any parents interested in attending.  The course has been subsidised for parents at a cost of $100.

    The Youth Mental Health First Aid course is designed for adults who interact with adolescents and can equip responsible adults to recognise and respond to mental health problems, refer a young person to professional help if needed and provide ongoing support without taking on the role of a counsellor.

    Within this 14-hour course, adults will learn about adolescent development and the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.  This course is evidence-based and covers common mental health problems affecting young people and associated crises, including thoughts of suicide and non-suicidal self injury.  The delivery format is flexible and course participants receive a copy of the manual to keep.

    Only 15 places are available for this course.  You can book and pay online by clicking here.
