Mental Health Training for Schools: Students and Staff

Building a supporting school environment. Student mental health is crucial for academic success and overall well-being. iTrain Australia offers specialise training programs to equip your school community with the tools they need to thrive.

Teen Mental Health First Aid is also available for directly working with young people to give them skills in talking to their friends who may be suffering from a mental health crisis.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for Schools:

  • Equip Staff & Educators: Our MHFA training equips teachers, coaches, and school staff to recognise signs of mental health concerns in students and respond appropriately.
  • Empower Students: Teen MHFA programs teach students communication skills to support peers struggling with mental health challenges.
  • Reduce Stigma, Build Confidence: Research shows MHFA training reduces stigma, increases confidence in helping peers, and identifies helpful adults for students in need.

Children and teens who struggle with their mental health are less likely to be motivated at school and may isolate themselves from friends and other social activities. Promoting positive mental health in schools and opening up conversations will lead to happier students who will achieve higher results and a happier time at school.

Why Should My School Offer Mental Health First Aid?

  • Improved Learning & Well-being:  Students struggling with mental health often face academic challenges and social isolation. Mental health awareness training fosters a positive school environment where students can thrive.
  • Creating a Caring Community: Schools that prioritise mental health create a supportive space where everyone feels safe and empowered.
  • Investing in the Future: By equipping students with mental health literacy, you empower them to support themselves and others, fostering a more positive and supportive society.

Mental Health Training for Young People

Young people can benefit hugely from mental health awareness training. Not only will it benefit them if they are ever struggling with their own mental health, but it can help to reduce the stigma around mental health conversations within our society. Young people who participate in mental health training are likely to take the lessons they have learnt into adulthood and make a real difference.
