Youth Projects are delivering COST-FREE, accredited Mental Health First Aid training for young LGBTIQ+ people across metropolitan and regional Victoria.

Our specialised mental health first aid training highlights the unique mental health support needs and experiences of young, LGBTIQ+ people to better equip community-based peers with evidence-based skills and knowledge to spot the signs, have important conversations, and support their peers to access critical mental health services.

Training is delivered via 2-day workshops both in-person and virtual and includes 6 months of post-program mentoring.

To participate in the rainbow mental health first aid training you must be aged between 18 - 25, reside or work in Victoria, and identify as an LGBTQI+ young person (or questioning if you might be), or work directly with LGBTQI+ young people.
