Thank you to the volunteers from our Committees, Coaching Team, Playing Groups and Trainer Team who successfully completed a Youth Mental Health First Aid course with Mental Health First Aid Australia.
The course covered how to assist adolescents who are developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis; where and how to get help; and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
With a focus on adolescents, our volunteer team members are available to assist anyone in our Club community including coaches, team managers, parents and players. If you would like to make contact please do so directly or through Kristan Wood (Woody), our Junior President on 0411 605 203 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
