Mental Health First Aid


(Emily Taylor) #1

Just floating an idea for doing Mental Health First Aid, if there’s a few people that would be interested in doing this course I’d be happy to see if we could do a training weekend (It’s 12 hours total) at HS. No idea on cost yet, but I’m also happy to research once I have an idea of numbers (For reference, I paid $90 for my last First Aid course). As for timing, I think I could organise for late Jan or early Feb.

Here’s the link to see what the course covers-

I’d be interested in seeing how much this costs, as well as a group rate for standard First Aid to be taught at HSBNE.

A RTO just opened across the road from work, and they’ve mentioned to me they’d be happy to run group sessions for a discounted rate (depending on how many people attending).

I can chase this up if people are interested

Hey Drew,

Sorry, I dropped the rope during the silly season, but would like to take this up again! Do you know if the RTO are still interested?


(Drew Spriggs) #5

Sure are - I’ll get some contact details off them

I gave them a call today. $150p/p for full CPR and First Aid, if we get at least 8 they’ll come to us.

Is that physical First Aid or Mental Health First Aid? Or Both?

Oh sorry, my original comment about the RTO was directed at Nog for physical First Aid
