Description

This 14 hour course teaches adults how to assist adolescents who are experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem.

The course is suitable for adults working with adolescents (those aged between 12 and 18 years), however, it can also be relevant for those helping people who are a little younger or older.

Course Content

Participants will learn about adolescent development and the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 earlier this year, AISWA is continuing to incorporate additional precautions to assist in the prevention of the spread of the virus.

  4. Where catering is included in your PL, we will ensure good hygiene standards are observed, this includes single-serve food items, disposable cups and single-use cutlery.
  5. We encourage you to please bring your own water bottle.
  6. We will ensure cleaning of the venue at suitable intervals.

We ask you do not attend our offices or any AISWA organised Professional learning sessions if any of the following effect you:
