MFHA COURSE

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

Many people are not knowledgeable or confident to offer assistance. Physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community, however most do not cover mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they're concerned about.

Course delivery

This is a 12 hour course, which can be delivered in 2 full day or 4 half day training sessions. Participants complete a 10 minute online exam after the course to receive their 3 year internationally recognised MHFA accreditation.

What the course covers

Learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

This is an education course, to learn how to give first aid to others, and is not a therapy or support group. What’s more, you’ll be able to actively reduce stigma in your community, by responding appropriately to myths and misunderstandings about mental illness.

Who can attend a course?

Any interested adult can attend. Please note this course is not a therapy or support group, rather it is an education course to learn how to give first aid to others.

Who can claim CPD points?

Most professionals can claim attendance at a MHFA course for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with their industry body. The Standard Mental Health First Aid Course has been endorsed for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points for a number of professions; see the full list here.
