Youth Mental Health First Aid Course

Youth Mental Health First Aid Course

In July this year, Girls Brigade NSW hosted our first Youth Mental Health First Aid course. All 12 spots were filled and the feed back from those who attended was extremally positive. This accredited course will be facilitated by a fully qualified trainer who is also a Girls Brigade Leader.

Blended Mental Health First Aid Courses are an alternate delivery pathway for our 14-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid Course (for adults assisting young people). Blended MHFA Courses include two components:

•       Course Component 1 A self-paced eLearning component

•       Course Component 2 An Instructor-led component using face-to-face or video conferencing (2 sessions of 3.5 hours each including set up time)

Date: The dates for the instructor-led component are Saturday 29th October and 5th November with a 9.30am start.

Cost: $200 per person.*

* Girls’ Brigade NSW would like to see at least one trained Mental Health First Aider in each company complete. As such, our intention is to cover 100% of the cost for one leader from each company, and 75% of the cost for each additional leader from that company. This is regardless of when the 1st team member completes the training, ie if someone from your company completed the course in July, then you’re company will be invoiced to pay $50pp. An invoice will be issued for additional leaders to attend the training.

To allow sufficient time to complete Component 1 before Component 2, registrations must be received 4 weeks prior to the first online training session.

Registrations must be received by 1st October.
