Mental health first aid is the help you give to someone developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. You can give this first aid until the person has received appropriate professional treatment or the crisis is resolved.

Mental Health First Aid skills based, early-intervention training programs mobilise and empower communities by equipping people with the knowledge and confidence to recognise, connect and respond to someone experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis.

Anyone can have a conversation that may save a life. Everyone should know how.

Jules has the most incredible capacity to engage an audience on the topic of Mental Illness. I completed the Accredited Metal Health First Aid course to improve my ability to support my team and clients with greater confidence. After the course I came away with a greater knowledge and understanding of how to support those around me when they need it most. Jules’ presentation draws on her lived experience and brings humour and sensitivity to her teaching, making learning about a challenging topic, and then applying it in real world scenario’s relatable and less confronting than it might otherwise be. Now our whole team completes the Accredited Mental Health First Aid course, and it is part of our ongoing professional development schedule.

Thanks for all you do Jules, our community and those you share your time and knowledge with are all the better for it.
