Mental Health First Aid Course


During Mental Health Week in October, Mission Beach Community Support Inc. hosted a two-day accredited Mental Health First Aid Course on October 13 and 14, 2021, in Mission Beach.

Twelve People attended the course, which was made possible due to a community grant from Mission Beach Community Bank and generous donations from the Mission Beach Community Association, Mission Beach Lions Club, Mission Beach Lionesses and C4.

Approximately one in five Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Mental Health First Aid training teaches participants the practical skills to support someone with a mental health problem and this can make a real difference to people in our community.

Mission Beach Community Support Inc will be seeking funding to organise a Mental Health First Aid course in 2022, focussed on mental health issues in young people.
