Good mental health is an important factor in facilitating senior Australians to live full, active and healthy lives. In older age, mental illnesses can particularly occur in association with physical illness, loss of independence, bereavement and brain changes that occur with ageing. Confusion and dementia are much more common in older people, but they are not a normal part of ageing.
This course is designed for families and carers assisting people aged 65+, with an aim to train the community to respond appropriately as early as possible to older people developing mental health problems, rather than wait for a mental health crisis before taking action.
Delivered by Mental Health First Aid Australia qualified instructors in a supportive and collaborative learning environment, expect to take away valuable skills and knowledge that may support you in the workplace, your community and beyond.
