Do you care for someone with a disability and live, work or play in Knox?

We are running a free Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course in partnership with Orana Community House and delivered by Neami National.

This course will focus on assisting people who have a disability and are experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. 

You'll learn:

  • How to provide initial support to adults aged 18 and over who are experiencing a mental health problem or crisis.
  • What to do until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

The course will run over 4 sessions: 

  • Wednesday 2 February 2022, 12pm - 3pm
  • Wednesday 9 February 2022, 12pm - 3pm
  • Wednesday 16 February 2022, 12pm - 3pm
  • Wednesday 23 February 2022, 12pm - 3pm

A light lunch will be provided at each session.

This course is a Knox Mental Health Roundtable initiative. The Knox Mental Health Roundtable is a network of 20 organisations working together to support the mental health needs of the Knox community.
