other person who is experiencing mental health problems.
During this workshop you will:
• Learn how to listen and respond to someone with a
mental health problem, even if they are experiencing a crisis.
• Help someone access the support they might need as part of their recovery journey.
• Actively reduce stigma in the veteran community by responding appropriately to myths and misunderstandings about mental illness.

Developed by Mental Health First Aid Australia and delivered by Open Arms qualified instructors who specialise in working with the veteran community.

Attendance on both days is essential.
