Bio

My name is Eliza Hunt. I am an accredited Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructor as well as a Teen MHFA instructor for years 7-9 and 10-12.. For the past 8 years I have been teaching disengaged youth with a variety of complex psychosocial, socio- economic and behavioural barriers, as well as substance use problems and mental illness. As such I have extensive real life experience dealing with all of the mental health crises covered in the Youth Mental Health First Aid course. I am a passionate educator who has undertaken this course to break the stigma of mental illness in the community and to help adults who work with or care for young people to develop the skills and knowledge to assist with any mental health crisis or developing problems that a young person may be experiencing. I am a friendly and approachable person that is quickly able to build a rapport with students, parents and colleagues. I am able to engage with a variety of people as I make them feel at ease which helps to facilitate learning and engagement with the topic. I encourage you to contact me to attend a course as it will not only change your life, but potentially change the lives of others.
