The Mental Health Promotions Unit is largely responsible for reducing the stigma associated with mental illness and suicide.

We provide training and education for individuals, communities, organisations, schools and industry to raise understanding and awareness about mental unwellness and suicide prevention. The training we provide includes:

  • Suicide Story (for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people only)
  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health First Aid
  • safeTALK
  • tailored modules for a range of industries that raise awareness and understanding of mental unwellness

MHACA also promotes health and wellbeing through a range of events and media strategies. Check out upcoming events and media coverage.
