One in five Australians aged 16-84 experience the symptoms of a diagnosable mental illness every year... that’s 20% of us. Yet this topic is still misunderstood and often stigmatised. Demystifying the topic of mental health comes largely through education. In this two-day interactive course, participants will be exposed to a firm understanding and awareness of mental health issues. Skills and strategies will be learnt for understanding individual impact and responding to mental health issues.
The training is done in such a special way that I feel inspired and empowered to see life in a different light. Now I can give help and support to others, which is so rewarding.
The training exceeded my expectations and I have experienced great personal development since completing it and getting on the phones. I have gained more than I could ever have thought.
