MENTAL HEALTH RESPONSE

A strategic approach to deal with mental health

Mental Health Response is our signature course. It is a hands-on, practical response course to help you support someone experiencing mental health issues. 

In order to prevent long-term mental health complications and the possibility of suicide, early intervention is key. 

This course aims to familiarise you with the signs and symptoms of poor mental health and equip you with the tools needed to support people with issues such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks. 

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to recognise changes in behaviour and offer an informed response to help somebody in need.

This is a 4 hour course which can be delivered as either:

          * face to face delivery over 4 hours

          * zoom as two separate modules of 2 hours (over two days)

Our MHR course is now accredited through Fitness Australia for CEC and with Exercise and Sports Science Aust. for CPD points.
