Accredited preventative mental health training that enhances everyday life

Many people don’t know what protects mental health, how to talk about it and what resources and skills are available.

This is what Resilience First Aid will teach you.

We all need to have the skills to be able to support those around us – at work, at home, wherever we are.

Why Get Certified

Why This Matters

Only 1 in 10 people have resilience that’s strong enough to protect against mental illness. This means 9 out of 10 of people can benefit from increasing resilience skills to boost protection against depression, anxiety, and other forms of mental ill-health.

50% of people will experience a period of mental illness in their life, but only two thirds will feel confident to talk about it with someone they trust.

In Australia, the mental health crisis costs somewhere between $43 billion and $51 billion per year, while a further $130 billion is the cost of the loss in productivity due to the mental health issues.

This is why we need to take a preventative approach to mental health. Rather than waiting until people need professional treatment, we can start supporting each other to connect and build mental wellness proactively.

Resilience First Aid is about Prevention

I have never seen a program as comprehensive, yet so easy to use. The PR6 makes sense. However, what stood out the most for me, is the ALL concept that RFA equipped me with to use in my professional and personal interactions.

This is the first time I have actually ‘used’ the learning and tools obtained from a training course. The ALL concept is simple, it works
