Recently SLSSA added Mental Health First Aid to its suite of delivered courses. The decision to do this was made from acknowledging that within Clubs and on our beaches more and more Members will be in contact with someone that may require some support due to a mental health issue.
The course is designed for participants to learn skills and gain confidence to assist fellow members, the public, family and co-workers experiencing mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
Clubs go far in providing many activities and services to address the physical wellbeing of its members and the public. This course will go that step further to address the mental wellbeing of members and members of the public that may be required.
SLSSA is pleased to advertise an Introductory offer of $50 for members and $100 for non-members. ($80 Members / $130 Non- members after July 30) This includes a Mental Health First Aid Manual and certification by Mental Health First Aid Australia.
