Manningham City Council has partnered with Richmond Institute to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to volunteers of Manningham sport and recreation clubs.

Using practical, evidence-based action plan, this mental health first aid (MHFA) course equips people with the knowledge and skills to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, and assist someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

This opportunity is available for two people per club.

The Blended Face to Face course is made up of two components:

  1. eLearning online modules (3-4 hours completed prior to workshop)
  2. Face-to-face workshop (4 hours)

It is strongly encouraged to have completed the e-Learning modules prior to the face-to-face session as this session will present scenarios and activities that apply these learnings.

Topics include:

  • Mental Health in the Community
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use

To register, speak to your club and then get in touch with our Recreation Participation Officer.

Please note: the session on Monday 2 May will be held at the Manningham Function Centre
