A two day mental health first aid training course will be held at Kyogle in early March.
The course on Monday 12 March and Tuesday 13 March is being run by the NSW Health Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP).
Those taking part in the course will learn how to help people in mental health crisis situations and/or in the early stages of mental health problems, including people exposed to traumatic events or intoxicated with substances.
Participants also will learn the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
The course is free of charge and will run from 9.30am-4pm both days. Morning and afternoon tea as well as lunch will be provided to all participants at no cost each day.
Numbers are limited, and registrations are essential. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The course, which will be held in the Supper Room of the Kyogle Memorial Institute, is funded by the Community Recovery Fund for flood affected communities.
