1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems in our lifetime. Know how to recognize the signs of a mental health crisis and how to respond.
Mental Health First Aid – Basic is a 12-hour course in which participants will learn how to provide initial help to people who are showing signs of a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Deborah will teach important mental health first aid skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counselors or mental health professionals. The philosophy behind this training is that mental health crisis, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention.
If crisis do arise, then members of the public can take action that may reduce the harm that could result.
In the Basic course, the following mental health problems are covered:
·    Mood disorders
·    Anxiety disorders
·    Psychosis
·    Substance Use Disorder

Deborah is an instructor and practitioner of massage therapy, with a special interest and expertise in Wellness Education and Training and has recently completed the Mental Health First Aid Basic instructor training. With over thirty years of experience as a teacher and facilitator, her workshops offer a mix of information and practical activities that promote wellness with a fair dose of humour and fun.
