If you suspect someone you know may need help or support due to a mental health condition, but you’re unsure, or don’t know how to help, Council is offering two free Community Mental Health First-Aid Training courses.

The training will include tips on providing mental health first aid in a crisis situation and is a nationally-accredited course, conducted by an accredited trainer.

The two-day courses will be held in Mildura and Ouyen on the following dates:

79 Oke Street
9am – 4pm both days.

Mildura
Wednesday and Thursday 23/24 October
Sandors Motor Inn
179 Deakin Avenue

Topics and conditions covered in the training will include:

  • depression and anxiety
  • psychosis
  • substance use problems
  • suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • non-suicidal self-injury
  • panic attacks
  • traumatic events
  • aggressive behaviours.

Due to the limited number of places, residents are asked to submit an expression of interest to undertake the training.
