Stanthorpe Rotary is proud to offer the community this 12-hour Mental Health First Aid course. The course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

Please note this course is not a therapy or support group, rather it is an education course to learn how to give first aid to others.
