First aid for par­ents

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Univer­sity of Mel­bourne’s Cen­tre for Men­tal Health is run­ning free train­ing for par­ents of chil­dren aged 12-15 from June to Oc­to­ber.

The pro­ject aims to teach par­ents the first aid skills needed to as­sist their chil­dren should they de­velop a men­tal health prob­lem or phys­i­cal in­jury, and later eval­u­ate the train­ing for a re­search study.

A 14-hour youth men­tal health first aid course and 15-hour Aus­tralian Red Cross first aid course are of­fered. Cour­ses are avail­able in Bur­swood, East Perth and Mos­man Park at var­i­ous times.
