Mental Health First Aid Training

CrewCare has partnered with Support Act and Griffith University to arrange for accredited courses in Mental Health First Aid training for CrewCare members, approved by the national Mental Health First Aid body and facilitated by Paige Gaudry from PNP Health. Online Mental Health First Aid is available for free (normally $220) thanks to Support Act and the Australian Government through the Office for the Arts. The 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The training teaches about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

This online certified training is intended for those individuals who are regularly in contact with concerned crew members and is aimed at providing them with the necessary tools and responses to ensure best practice and help those also deal with the stresses it can place on them. This training is specifically designed for crew who work, or have worked professionally in the music industry.

Mental Health First Aid is the nationally accredited training for individuals and teams to be able to effectively respond to mental health issues.
