    Mental health first aid training should be compulsory for all lecturers and staff and for all students.

2:06pm on 7 Oct 19 Hi Annaline! It's one of my manifesto goals that all Allied-Health and Social Care students should be first aid trained and mental health trained. Maybe we could work together on this!

2:08pm on 7 Oct 19 its one of mine too, i think we should get our heads together and rally support for the idea.

5:50pm on 7 Oct 19 Fully behind you on this. As you know, Annaline I managed to get training for about a dozen students in May 2018 but I feel every student should benefit from having the knowledge of how to do Mental Health First Aid. If there is anything I can do to help this campaign further, please let me know!
