YMHFA Course for your School

Schools that have taken the initiative to have some or all of their teachers and frontline staff attend a Youth Mental Health First Aid course have reported tangible benefits to the mental health welfare of both staff and students. With the rates of suicide for Australian youth at an all-time high, this alone is a reason to seriously consider providing this training for your staff. Please contact me via the form below and we can discuss possibilities, with no obligation required of course. Alternatively, some schools select to obtain our services to provide specialised training on a smaller number of topics, either in a shorter presentation or a one-day course.

Thank you again for the course last week, it was one of the most interesting and well presented courses I've been to. Your passion and understanding of the material is inspiring.I just wanted to share with you... A work colleague's son has been suffering depression recently and on Friday he became suicidal. She felt helpless and was quite distraught as she didn't know his whereabouts and didn't know what course of action to take.After the course I felt so much more confident in giving her advice and talking about options etc. She had no idea that the police could be called for help and to intervene if necessary, and she proceeded to do that. The ambulance was called and the usual protocols were observed.  They were really helpful and understanding.  He is doing okay, and they are continuing with counselling etc, and the doctor has put him on anti depressants (and I even know about the dangers of this but that sometimes it is a good option and we know what to look out for).

So- thank you so much. I am so much better equipped to deal with some of the situations that have crossed my path previously.
