Hi @menova ,
That's a great question! I'm not sure of any specific courses but if she is at school it might be worth having a chat with her school about this? Your daughter can also get support through Kids Helpline or the Suicide Call Back Service in assisting her friends to get help and looking after herself while doing it. And ReachOut has some great articles she can access through the 'Helping Someone Else' page.

How did you go with finding Mental Health First Aid Training? Were there any courses available in your local area?
I did have a quick look, as I am sure that I had seen Mental health First Aid for young people. Mental Health Australia offer courses that are tailored for teens here. If this is something that you feel the school should also look into, there may be an opportunity to have this course brought into a larger cohort of young people.
ReachOut also has some youth friendly resources on supporting a friend who is thinking about suicide which may be a good starting point too.
It gives me a lot of hope to know that young people are wanting to learn how to support each other. Good on you for coming online and asking about resources for your daughter- these are such important conversations to have
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
