Mental Health Basics Training

Taught by general psychologist and La Trobe counsellor Chiara Dargin, Mental Health Basics is a free 4-hour workshop that provides you with the basics to be able to recognize common mental health symptoms, respond to these concerns effectively and know where to refer individuals for further support. The workshop includes an understanding of mental health myths, prevalence, and stigma.

It will cover an understanding of:

  • depressive symptoms
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • suicidal behaviour
  • self-harm

Micro counselling skills are taught to help communicate empathy, care and be able to support an individual on an emotional level and students are provided with referral pathways and services that you and the general public can access.

Come along to learn some valuable skills you can use in real-life situations to help those around you.
