Mental Health First Aid Training
What is Mental Health?
The World Health Organisation states that mental health is a "state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make contribution to her or his community".
Anxiety and depression affect around 3 million Australian every day, which affects our entire community. There are many different types of treatment and supports that can help people with mental illness function better and aid their recovery. At Hope and Grow I aim to provide caring and supportive service that helps people to grow & change into the person they want to be.
What Recovery look's like? "... a way of living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life even with the limitation caused by illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning and purpose in one's life as one grows beyond the catastrophic effects of mental illness". (Anthony.)
