I am a trainer and have been involved in delivering a variety of different programmes in which Mental Health First Aid is a key training course. My journey with Mental Health First Aid began back in 2010 after listening to Betty Kitchener speak at a State consultation committee where I decided this program was what my sector needed. I was trained up in this same year and have been delivering MHFA to a varity of participants including welfare, education and community sectors and to specific organisations, these include 4th year Pharmacy Students at Monash Universtity, across Australia for the Salvation Army as well as other not for profit organisations. I am a Master Trainer (see accreditations below). I like to make this training fun, informative and participatory. Where those who are attending are from a specific workplace the scenarios used to apply the mental health first aid principles are made relevant to participants. This is a great training,see contact details if you would like to know more.
