What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

MHFA teaches participants how to assist people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

The 3 year internationally accredited 12 hour course is delivered over two days by Dianne Pepicelli, who will give you strong skills to recognise the signs of mental disorders early, effective strategies to assist, and the confidence to use them. The course can be customised for workplaces so that managers and employees can better understand mental health issues, promote a healthy workplace and minimise the risk to employees' mental health.

MHFA is a thoroughly evaluated, evidence informed, skills development course for individuals and organisations that provides:

  • Improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies.
  • Confidence in providing first aid to a person experiencing a mental health problem.
  • A decrease in stigmatising attitudes.
  • An increase in the amount and type of support provided to others.

Mental health first aid improves the health and bottom line of businesses. A research study conducted into Australian workplaces found that for every $1 invested in taking action to create a mentally healthy workplace, there was a return on investment of $2.30.
