Centacare NQ is pleased to provide Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training in Townsville and Mount Isa.

Standard MHFA Training Benefits: 

  1. Knowledge: Improves knowledge of mental illnesses, treatments and first aid actions;
  2. Confidence: Increases confidence in providing first aid;
  3. De-stigmatising: Decreases stigmatising attitudes. 
  4. Support: Increases the support provided to others. 

Expected Outcomes: 

  • Recognise common mental health problems; 
  • Provide initial help using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan; 
  • Seek appropriate professional help, and 
  • Respond in a crisis situation

This is a 12 hour educational course, not a therapy or support group.
