Teen Mental Health First Aid Training
As part of the Club’s Youth Mental Health project, the Teen Mental Health First Aid training course was presented to the entire year 9 student cohort at Beaumaris Secondary College in early November. 180 students received training to learn about the signs and symptoms of mental health problems that may be experienced by young people, and how they can support a friend who may be experiencing a mental health problem.
We want to thank the 4 trainers from Mental Health First Aid Australia (Katie, Rebecca, Jola and Jimmy) for delivering the course to all the students across 3 sessions/days of training. We’d also like to thank Beaumaris Secondary College for their collaboration on this initiative, and for all the work required their end to incorporate the training into the curriculum for the entire year 9 group of students.
