Mental Health Awareness
A unique short online course to begin a journey into understanding mental health challenges and how to respond appropriately and support those around you experiencing distress or crises.

You'll gain an understanding of the signs and symptoms of the mental health challenges that far too many of us must cope with in society today, whether directly or indirectly, as well as understand the support that has been shown to be effective in research. Drawn from an extensive array of government and not-for-profit agencies and their resources from amazing agencies like Beyond Blue, American Mental Health, Black Dog, Conversations Matter, as well as other global agencies including Our World Data and WHO.
