Join us for this FREE two-day Youth Mental Health First Aid course in Northam.

Topics will include

Depression, anxiety problems, eating disorders, substance use problems, suicidal thoughts and behaviours, and psychosis.

On completion of the post- course assessment, you’ll be accredited as a Youth Mental Health First Aider for 3 years.
