@Former-Member There are a range of courses available - from Workplaces to Youth Mental Health courses for Teachers and Leaders. I am supposed to be doing this last one (depending on how I am doing!).
There are both face-to-face and blended courses you can do.
More info for you - go to https://mhfa.com.au/

I know the Teacher course is small (max 25 participants) and runs for 2 full days. There is a calendar of courses around the country on the website (if I remember correctly up to about the middle of 2018 so far) so you can check out what is close to you and when it is offered @Former-Member.
I am pretty sure I won't be able to do all of the two days - I can barely get through 2 days on the couch lol - but should be worth doing what I can and then maybe the whole course at a later date!

I did this course a couple of years ago @Former-Member through the university I attend, it was well worth it. I dont think the course they replaced it with (at this uni) is nearly as good.

I did the course a few years ago it was very enlightening. There was a diverse group of participants ranging from lived experience to little understanding of mental health. The course was conducted over two days. One of the best short courses in any field I have done.

How are you all tonight ?
What a great thread.....It's about three weeks old but the context is something that we sll should be thinking about: just like @Former-Member.
I did the Mental Health First Aid about 5 years ago I think.....about that. It is geat because it covers things like
1. self medicating
2. need for medication.
I ca'nt remember anything else....does anyone know anymore?

I did the course a years ago it was very inspiring. Really good stuff and materials.Now i really read some education platform, this for example https://truowl.com/. After different works and sport training i read that. I think it is good addition to the course.
