Mental Health First Aid

A Mental Health First Aid qualification gives you the skills and understanding you'll need to help a person who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves. Mental health is something that frequently comes up on our programs and camps. We would love to see volunteers equipped to support children, young people and families who struggle with mental illness and its effects, and we have managed to get a sympathetic, qualified trainer to run the course for SU volunteers at a discounted price. This course is for SU volunteers/members only.

Dates: Saturday 19th and 26th October (2-day course)
Time: 9am-4:30pm
Where: SU (7 Irvine St, Bayswater)
Cost: $180
Trainer: Ruth Warwick (qualified trainer)

Lunch, snacks and all materials provided.
Registrations close October 3rd.
Course will be cancelled if we don't have enough registrations.

Royal Life Saving WA provides Provide First Aid training for $99 per person- we outsource this as it's more cost effective. You can find out more info and sign up here- this is the qualification we require of First Aiders on SU programs.

You can also register for a CPR requal here or a full Provide CPR course here if you would like (remembering that this isn't a required SU qualification).

Journey Program

What youth ministry leaders need most isn’t simply more easy answers to problems, more conferences and more impersonal training, but a relationship through which the youth ministry leader can be held accountable, be encouraged, and be helped to put their learnings into practice. The SU Journey program seeks to provide that relationship.

Who:  Those who are responsible for a Youth Ministry (although we may accept some Youth Leaders)
When:  Feb – Dec 2019, at the convenience of the mentor and the Youth Ministry Leader
Cost: 
TBA
