Edway Training offers mental health first aid courses in Sydney to build communities where everyone knows how to help those with mental health issues. These programmes give participants the knowledge and assurance to strike up important conversations with those around them and, if necessary, to suggest seeking professional assistance.
In Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) classes, participants learn basic, useful first-aid techniques for assisting a family member, friend, coworker, or another individual with mental health issues.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, an estimated 1 in 5 Australians may experience a mental disorder each year. Given this, it is likely that someone close to us may experience mental health issues, making it crucial to be aware of the symptoms and know how to deal with someone who is having a hard time.
Stigmatising attitudes and ignorance frequently make it difficult for people to offer the right kind of assistance to others around them and for those needing the help they need at an early stage.
Here’s what to expect from this dynamic course.
