RVA Partner Organisations: November Mental Health First Aid Training Accreditation

RVA News

Rare Voices Australia (RVA) is working with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia to offer RVA Partner organisations the opportunity to train one leader in their organisation as a MHFA Officer. 

One aim of this project is to build the capacity of rare disease organisations to provide wellbeing and mental health support to their rare disease community. This aligns with Action 2.5.3 of the National Strategic Action Plan for Rare Diseases (the Action Plan). This initiative is funded through the Rare Disease Awareness, Education, Support, and Training (RArEST) Project. Read more background information here.

The final MHFA training sessions for 2022 on Tuesday 15 and 22 November 2022 from 6pm to 9pm AEST are now at capacity. However, RVA Partner organisation representatives can add their name to a wait list by completing this form. RVA will cover the cost of the MHFA course, which will be delivered in an online format. This includes a hard copy of the MHFA manual that will be mailed to participants.

The final session will run on:

  • Tuesday 15 November and 22 November 2022 from 6pm to 9pm AEST – RSVP by Tuesday 8 November
