Do you know how to recognise if someone has mental health issues or what to do to support them? 
Over two years of restrictions and uncertainty have changed the way we live our lives and we are seeing a rise in mental health issues in our community.

Council is committed to helping our community and is offering FREE mental health training to people who live, work, play, socialise, study or have family in Frankston City

A number of informative sessions are run each month until July.

Mental Health Matters is a short 1.5 hour online information session, run by the Australian Red Cross. It covers typical indicators of mental health concerns and discusses effective support.

The session gives participants a basic understanding of how to support someone who is experiencing mental health concerns and is the ideal platform to begin mental health training.

There are no formal assessments as part of this non-accredited course and students will receive a Certificate of Participation from Australian Red Cross. 

Content will cover history of mental health support, recognition of mental health concerns and support/assistance.

The benefits of this program are:

•  Get an introduction to mental health

•  Increase understanding effective supports for mental health

•  Recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health concerns

Frankston Library is also hosting a limited number of these short information sessions in person.

We will also be offering a limited number of face to face, half or full day courses, in May and June for people interested in furthering their learning in this area.
