Managing anxiety online course

Developed by Griffith counsellors, the Managing Anxiety Online Course is a detailed set of modules designed to assist you with developing coping strategies to overcome anxiety.

This is an action oriented and strength-based program. Current evidence tells us that developing small actions and focussing on strengths, is the best way to move forward when experiencing anxiety. Find out for yourself!

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) provides participants with the skills to assist people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

There are core Mental Health First Aid courses to learn how to assist specific population groups, and specialised Mental Health First Aid courses to learn how to help someone experiencing a specific crisis or situation.

Courses offered to staff and students are delivered by an Accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructor. Click below to explore available courses.

Please note: Mental Health First Aid courses are a professional development opportunity to learn how to give first aid to others, and is not a therapy or support group.
