Reducing the Risk of Sexual Violence Training

Reducing the Risk of Sexual Violence training has been developed by the Health Promotion Unit and run for students through the UWA Student Guild Leadership Program.

The 3 hour program, delivered by the Sexual Assault Resource Centre (SARC), aims to increase student understanding of what constitutes sexual violence, strategies to prevent sexual violence at student events and the correct procedure for responding to an incident of sexual violence by a peer.

Request a Reducing the Risk of Sexual Violence session for your student or staff group. 

Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. This first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves. 

Through this training, students and staff will develop a deeper understanding of common mental health problems and strategies to support those experiencing them.

The 12 hour (2 day) internationally accredited training program is delivered by the Health Promotion Unit through the Mentally Healthy Campus Strategy. The program is free for enrolled UWA students. Participants receive a certificate upon completion of the program.

Register for a Mental Health First Aid Training course.

Mental Health Awareness Workshops

Mental Health Awareness Workshops have been developed by the Health Promotion Unit based on Mental Health First Aid. The 3 hour short-course provides an overview of the most common mental health problems in Australia such as anxiety and depression.

Participants will be provided with strategies to promote and assist their peers to access appropriate support. Workshops can be scheduled for student or staff groups upon request.

Brief Alcohol Intervention Training (BAIT)

Through the BAIT Program, students are trained to deliver brief alcohol interventions to their peers to encourage healthy reductions in alcohol consumption.

Students will then have the opportunity join the Peer Education Program to apply their skills at numerous events on campus and at the residential colleges.

Training sessions are delivered by UWA students who have experience delivering interventions at UWA.  

If you are interested in joining the BAIT Program, contact the Health Promotion Unit
