As a workplace health and safety initiative, the UWS team participated in a Mental Health First Aid training course. It was great to have most of the team together again for the two-day course. Conducted by Lauren Gledhill from Workplace Interventions, the course provides eligibility to become an Accredited Mental Health First Aider.
Approximately 20% of Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Having mental health first aid skills means we can assist someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
