MHFA for People with an Intellectual Disability - Film | Mental Health First Aid
27/08/2019

Mental Health First Aid Australia is committed to telling the stories of people with lived experiences of mental health problems.

MHFA is developing a Mental Health First Aid for People with an Intellectual Disability course. The course will be designed to equip people
with the skills to provide mental health first aid to a person with an intellectual disability.

The course will share the lived experiences of people with an intellectual disability who have experienced and sought support for
mental health problems.

What we are looking for:

We are calling for expressions of interest from people with an intellectual disability, and their carers, who are interested in sharing
their experiences on film for this course.

We are looking for 1-2 people to be interviewed for this film. This may be either:

• A person with an intellectual disability who has experienced mental health problems AND their carer

• A person with an intellectual disability who has experienced mental health problems OR

• A carer of a person with an intellectual disability and mental health problems.

This opportunity is only open to people over the age of 18.
