In partnership with local community groups and sporting clubs, Council is providing free Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training for Yarra Ranges residents aged 18+ years who volunteer in the Yarra Ranges.
MHFA teaches participants how to assist people who are: developing a mental health problem; experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem; or are in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
The following are courses being run by Yarra Valley groups.
