Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

I am writing to inform you that the Mental Health Education Team at Barwon Health is delivering MHFA programs in both the Youth and the Standard MHFA training courses in 2017.

The training program is 2 days and is designed to provide participants with the skills to support someone who may be developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.
