Mental health concerns are on the rise in Australia. Research shows that 44% of adults will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. When someone is dealing with anxiety, depression and other problems, the care you provide can make all the difference.

The program is suitable for managers, team leaders, directors and professionals at all levels. If you want to expand your career and support your team, a Mental Health First Aid® course is a fantastic opportunity.
