About your facilitator:

Rosie Bartlett
is a Principal Master Instructor with over 14 years experience training in Mental Health First Aid.

Rosie’s passion lies in changing one workplace at a time through shining a spotlight on mental health.

She offers a variety of tailored and certified training designed to improve mental health literacy and build capacity in workplaces. Rosie challenges ‘stigma’ and normalises mental health challenges both personally and within a workplace. Rosie’s training empowers people to recognise the early signs and symptoms within themselves and others, and to navigate wellbeing conversations with confidence, all while providing strong leadership and building a positive culture.

Rosie has delivered training to a number of organisations in the early childhood education sector in South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania. She understands the unique challenges faced both internally and from an external perspective, as well as the important role each member of a team has in nurturing children while delivering a great experience for their parents and carers. Rosie is also a mum of two boys who have had an early childhood care journey spanning from the nursery at 9 months of age through to the completion of preschool.

Formal certification in Mental Health First Aid can only be obtained by completing Component One and Component Two of this offering. Places for Component Two are STRICTLY limited, and participants MUST demonstrate that they have completed Component One to be considered for Component Two.
