Take your first step in becoming a Mental Health First Aider.

Each year 1 in every 5 Australians will experience a mental illness.

Completing a MHFA Course will help you to develop the skills to support a friend, family member or co-worker.

Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and make a real difference to your community.

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID IS A THOROUGHLY EVALUATED, EVIDENCE INFORMED, SKILLS DEVELOPMENT COURSE FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS

Do you know how to help others in a crisis?

MHFA courses will teach you how to provide initial support to others who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence based Action Plan.

Our courses are based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.

Making a Difference:

Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and

Why attend?

Evaluations consistently show that MHFA training develops confidence in providing first aid to individuals with mental illness and improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies. It also provides a better understanding of people who have a mental illness.
