Mental Health First Aid Training

CFMF is pleased to be able to offer complimentary Mental Health First Aid Training to it’s volunteers.

The Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches people how to support adults dealing with mental health challenges until they can get professional help or the situation improves. Participants learn to recognize signs of common mental health issues, how to start conversations about concerns, and offer initial support and information. Completing the course makes them Mental Health First Aiders, ready to provide crucial assistance. The course offers flexible delivery options and is endorsed by Suicide Prevention Australia for its quality and effectiveness in suicide prevention.
