If you missed out one of the recent Mental Health First Aid Courses for Nursing Students, run by Jenny Kelly in Townsville, Cairns and Mackay, you can undertake this course via eLearning at https://www.mhfa.com.au/cms/mhfa-medical-and-nursing-students/
University students, especially nursing students are at higher risk of mental health problems, increasing the rate of dropout. High levels of stigma mean many are reluctant to seek help. Fellow students are in a good position to help.
The Mental Health First Aid Course for Nursing students teaches nursing students how to assist a peer who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, using case-studies, videos and tailored resources. The skills learnt can be useful when helping any adult. This training is available for free until June 2014 as a face-to-face course or via eLearning.
