Highway to Well: Mental Health First Aid Courses: Register Now for 28 July

Published On July 3, 2018 | By Luke | News

UNE, in collaboration with Highway to Well and Hunter New England Local Health District, are pleased to again promote the opportunity for students to be trained in Mental Health First Aid for Tertiary Students, with enrolment in the e-learning component of this course currently FREE for first year students in selected health courses. A great opportunity to build skills relevant to both your personal and work life. Students can register to do the free online component via www.mhfa.com.au

This is a blended course that involves a self-paced online or e-component which is FREE, but also attendance at a 4 hour face-to-face component which is at a student’s own expense. We are fortunate to have the face-to-face training available at the UNE Armidale campus on one more date, Saturday July 28th, and at a reasonable fee of $50. The online component must be completed prior to attending the 4 hour face-to-face component which will be recognised for the New England Award.

The majority of Australian University students are young people, and at least 1 in 4 of these young people will experience mental ill-health in any one year. When young people are going through a difficult time, it’s often friends who notice first or who they confide in for support. It’s important to have the skills and confidence to help.

For further details on how to register for the July 28th face-to-face component of this course, please contact Sarah Green on0438296015 or at  sarah.green@highwaytowell.com.au.

Students in other parts of Australia can find an approved MHFA instructor for the face-to-face component via the list of instructors at this link https://mhfa.com.au/courses/public/types/blendedtertiary
