Mental Health First Aid Course
Learn skills and gain confidence to assist friends, 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.
This 2-day course will be faciliated by Pastor Ralph Estherby (National Director CA) who is has wide experience in offering assistance to individuals in need of Mental Health support.
This is a great professional development opportunity for chaplains and for members of the public who want to be able to render appropriate assistance.

Our aim is to care for people at their point of need, by communicating the love of Christ in a compassionate and practical way. Equipped with theological training and skills in pastoral care, chaplains minister to people facing deeply distressing and traumatic situations, enabling them to better cope with periods of instability.
