Sutherland Shire Council is running a Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) course soon and has extended an invitation to Sutherland Shire Football Association. The aim of the course is to train those people who are often the first point of contact with young people. We are offering the course free of charge, the approximate rate for regular attendance would be $350.
The course enables attendees to practice Mental Health First Aid for Young People. This would include but is not limited to, how to deal with a threat of suicide, how to identify possible indications of eating disorders, depression and other mental illness.
The courses will run on the following dates at Sutherland Shire Council and we would be like to invite you to be involved.
September 14 and 15 or,
October 19 and 20.
The course does require a two day commitment and will provide formal qualification in Youth Mental Health First Aid following completion.
