Once these steps are finalised, participants will receive a certificate of achievement. Although CMH1R is not a formal qualification, this certificate acknowledges the increased knowledge and skills acquired.
The CMH1R training package was developed over two years through consultation with rural Community Resource Centres and Service Provider Working Groups, plus rigorous trials rurally and metro based. The content is trauma informed and recovery focused using the latest information, research and both national and state relevant statistics.
The Community Mental Health 1st Response (CMH1R) has been designed to incorporate mental health information and suggested strategies for responding when people present with mental health challenges or illnesses. This is in recognition that even though sometimes staff in rural locations do not have formal mental health qualifications, they are often the first contact for people experiencing challenges in these areas. This package aims to be inclusive of diverse educational, cultural backgrounds and geographical locations through ease of online access.
