Mental Health First Aid is free, nationally accredited training for individuals and teams to be able to effectively respond to mental health issues, provided in partnership with Makeshift.

The training will teach you how to recognise common mental health issues, provide initial help using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan, respond in a mental health crisis situation and seek appropriate professional help.

First Nations Mental Health First Aid is now also available, specifically for First Nations musicians, managers, crew and music workers, and non-Indigenous people working with them.
