Manningham City Council has partnered with Richmond Institute to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to volunteers of Manningham sport and recreation clubs.

The aim of this initiative is to build the capacity of volunteers through a recognised and accredited mental health first aid course, upskilling volunteers to recognise the signs and symptoms of someone who may be experiencing a mental health problem or crisis and learn the skills to confidently offer help and support.

This opportunity to open to 2 x people ONLY per club.

Become a Mental Health First Aider and Mental Health champion at your club.

Approximately 20% of Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year, however, many people feel uncomfortable and unprepared when thinking about starting a mental health conversation with someone they are concerned about.
Using practical, evidence-based action plan, mental health first aid (MHFA) courses equip people with the knowledge and skills to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and assist someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Blended Face to Face course is made up of two components:
Component 1: eLearning online modules (3-4 hours completed prior to workshop)
Component 2: Face-to-face workshop (4 hours)

It is strongly encouraged to have completed Component 1 prior to the face-to-face session. The face-to-face session will present scenarios and activities so that MHFA course learning can be applied.

Topics include:

  • Mental Health in the Community
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use
