Mental Health First Aid (Blended Delivery)
Learn basic first aid skills to support mental health.
With approximately 20% of Australian adults experiencing a common mental illness each year, the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course helps participants to develop the skills to support a friend, family member, or colleague who may be struggling with mental health challenges. Equipped with mental health first aid skills, participants will be able to assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis, and ultimately make a real difference to their home life, community, or workplace.
This course has been funded by ClubGRANTS.
Course Component 1 - A self-paced eLearning component (takes 5-7 hours to complete)
Course participants first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component, which teaches them about mental health problems, mental health crises, and skills to offer initial help to an adult developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Course Component 2 - An Instructor-led component (2 sessions of 2.5 hours each)
Instructor-led sessions will be delivered as an online workshop via Zoom, providing the opportunity for participants to revise and consolidate knowledge in a group environment, and to apply their skills to specific scenarios.
