    FUNDING

    The standard price for Mental Health First Aid is $490 standard or $390 full members. 

    However, this course is kindly funded by WA Primary Health Alliance and costs only $25 including materials and catering.

    The training is being made available for community members who may not otherwise have access to Mental Health First Aid, and is not intended for anyone attending for professional reasons or for use at work.

    For example, the course welcomes members of community organisations, volunteers, carers and anyone attending for personal interest, outside of a paid job role.  Students and job-seekers are also welcome.

    If you work in the mental health sector or have other professional reasons for attending, WAAMH can visit your workplace to provide training, but you may not register for this funded community course.

    Since this course is funded for all participants, scholarships do not apply.
