Mental health workshops

Springwood, Winmalee and Blackheath neighbourhood centres have joined forces to support workshops to help people understand mental health issues.

Mental Health First Aid is an accredited workshop designed to give participants the knowledge and skills to support someone who might be showing signs of a mental health issue.The training is run over two days by accredited facilitator and Mountains resident Jane Armstrong. The training doesn’t replace the need for mental health professionals but does create a community that recognises the benefits of supporting those in need.
