Mental Health First Aid
IPAR’s instructors have been accredited by Mental Health First Aid Australia to deliver courses. MHFA courses teach how to provide initial help to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
